I know a lass who’s partner comes from a very outgoing sporty family. The partner started doing sport/gym management at college, then changed direction and went to uni for business studies. The brother of said partner did sports sciences at university and his long time girlfriend from school specifically applied to the same university so they could remain together – she doing history. They have all changed course since those heady days. The gym chap now heads up a very successful web based company employing several staff. The sporty guy is a top graphic artist. The most interesting change is the girlfriend. Her directional change was dramatic from history to reading law. She is now a junior solicitor and doing very well – selected to head up a case study into employment and gender pay differences. This tiny example show how uni can be the catalyst for broadening expectations and career thoughts.
