What is your study programme?

As a student, you may ask yourself, ‘What can I actually do with my degree? Is my chosen study perhaps too specialised? Is an academic education an effective starting point for my career goals?’

The reality is, however, that  graduates find positions as academic professionals in a very broad range of functions.
