What degree should I study?

Career planning is a lifelong process. It involves a series of decisions considered over time as your life priorities and opportunities change. For prospective and current university students, career planning is about choosing a career path related to your field of study and preparing you for employment. You can now explore your career options using the three steps below.

Step one

Career Assessment – these career assessments will generate a list of careers and occupations that may be suitable for you:

* For PDF documents you must have the free Adobe Acrobat Reader, which can be downloaded from the Adobe Download page.

Step two

The next step is to find out more about those occupations. You can use the myfuture website occupations list to do this. Be sure to also click on the specific information for each occupation to see the education/training required.

Step three

Once you have carried out the career assessments and checked the details of careers and occupations you may be interested in, you can then access our USC Career guide to discover which USC degree you need to study in order to achieve that career.
