Where you choose to go from here will depend on your highest level of qualifications. Some of you will have taken this course out of interest, whereas others will be looking at new career choices. If you are still in secondary education (or only have qualifications usually taken at age 16) then you will need to embark on further study before considering a degree course in this area. Subject areas that you may want to consider include History, Geography and science based subjects.

If you have qualifications taken at 18 years old (A-levels, Highers or the International Baccalaureate in the UK), then you may be eligible to apply for an Undergraduate degree programme.
