You should possibly consider studying environmental science or environmental engineering in third level.

You would also need to consider if you would like do quite a bit of driving during your day and to be able to oragnise your own work plans as both these things are important.

Realist?
Realist
Realists are usually interested in 'things' - such as buildings, mechanics, equipment, tools, electronics etc. Their primary focus is dealing with these - as in building, fixing, operating or designing them. Involvement in these areas leads to high manual skills, or a fine aptitude for practical design - as found in the various forms of engineering.

Realists like to find practical solutions to problems using tools, technology and skilled work. Realists usually prefer to be active in their work environment, often do most of their work alone, and enjoy taking decisive action with a minimum amount of discussion and paperwork.

A law degree provides the ideal foundation for the aspiring solicitor or barrister.

Our graduates go on to enjoy successful careers in the top law firms in Ireland, UK and abroad.

The skills learned through studying law in Trinity are useful in all walks of life and offer wider opportunities than professional practice alone, with many graduates finding employment in public administration, business, journalism, accountancy, banking, insurance, politics, foreign affairs, diplomacy and international financial services both in Ireland and abroad.
