not sure how the system works in other countries, but in the US teacher's seem to have the most vacation time. 3 weeks off during the school year and a 2 month summer vacation....
i'm in school right now to get my master's degree to be an ESL teacher and i can't wait! it's a good degree for travellers bc we can go abroad to teach too!

Whatever you choose, choose the one thing that you like the most. It's the only way to be happy with a job, and a better chance of getting your certificate at the end.

Also ask yourself if you have the skills to do the job, I tried journalism, but found out quickly that I don't have some skills you need to be succesful. Also journalism (at least here in the Netherlands) is a very theoretical course for the first two years, with a lot of grammar of the language.

What interests you??

Are you open to other areas outside of the social sciences, such as ecology, biology - the "other" sciences?

At 17, I had 20 different things I thought I would like to do. What are some of yours?

(I'm asking because having a bit of information allows others to think "outside the box", so to speak.)

The thing is that i did an arts course for pre university, taking literature, history and economics, so i would not qualify for any science based courses - thats the way it goes where i study.... so my only options are arts/social sciences, law, which is virtually impossible to get in, communication studies and business.... As for business, i would have to try for provisional admission too cause i did not take mathematics.... So i guess that doesnt leave me with a lot of choices....

Hello Itenerant

I think, aim at something that makes money and where jobs are most available.
Then maybe u could do contract work, which would give u more control over how much time u get off, to travel.
I think qualifications, which seem to promise a career that involves traveling are often disappointing. A small minority of graduates from these degrees will strike lucky and get the exciting jobs.

And consider other routes, besides a formal university degree. If u spend time getting a degree, the subject should deeply interest u, or else be a definate route into a high earning career.;)
