          Careers and Subject Combinations

          You may not know what career path you wish to take yet and that’s ok!

          You may think you know and then change your mind during 6th form – that’s ok too!

          The best advice is to keep your options open with a combination of subjects that will help you develop and demonstrate a variety of knowledge and skills. The following is a list of “facilitating subjects” (according to Russell Group Universities) which are well regarded by universities no matter what degree you hope to study:

           

          Some careers prefer academic subjects to vocational e.g. Law students should study History rather than Law.

          Some universities are very specific about A-level combinations and grade requirements, so researching what will be needed for a particular degree subject you may be interested in is recommended.

          Careers in Science/Medicine

          • For careers in Science or Engineering, consider studying Maths.
          • For careers in Medicine/Veterinary Science/Pharmacy, Chemistry is important.
          • Maths and Physics are a good combination
          • Chemistry and Biology are also a good combination

           

          Careers in Accounting/Finance

          Graduates from all degree disciplines can pursue a career in Finance. Although many firms will be looking for evidence that applicants are competent with numbers/data. E.g. Actuarial roles require Maths and Statistics.

          Maths, Chemistry, Economics, Physics all lend themselves to Finance/Accounting careers.

          Computer science/IT or software engineering degrees are often a prerequisite for careers within IT/Finance.
