Why is it important to get a varied education?

Posted on February 12, 2017 at 4:45 pm

Some people have a good idea of what they want to do in later life from a young age. Often this will change over time but for some, they have their heart set on one particular job.

Regardless of if you think you know what you want to do career wise or not, it is vital to get a varied education and broaden your horizons.

For example, someone may know that they want to get in to acting and therefore concentrate on drama and possibly English but nothing else. If you later change your mind then you may have limited yourself by not gaining qualifications in other areas.

If you do a degree at university, you may have the chance to add an additional year on to the end of your degree to gain a teaching qualification. This will again give you options to fall back on should you want a change in career path. You may find that you actually enjoy teaching more than you think and want to continue to do that as a job rather than what you actually did your main degree in.
