Careers rarely develop the way we plan them. Our career path often takes many twists and turns, with particular events, choices and people influencing our direction.

Linda Coghlan
For women considering a career in forestry, the physical ability required is more fitness and technique rather than strength. If you enjoy variability in your working day; being part of an industry which is not yet hitting its prime; the great outdoors; a love of nature and peaceful surroundings then forestry is for you.

Social?
Social
The Social person's interests focus on some aspect of those people in their environment. In all cases the social person enjoys the personal contact of other people in preference to the impersonal dealings with things, data and ideas found in other groups.

Many will seek out positions where there is direct contact with the public in some advisory role, whether a receptionist or a counsellor. Social people are motivated by an interest in different types of people, and like diversity in their work environments. Many are drawn towards careers in the caring professions and social welfare area, whilst others prefer teaching and other 'informing' roles.

Career Progression header image

Adjusting to life in another country and its university system is a crucial formative experience for anyone. You will gain enhanced independence and maturity and you will demonstrate commitment and adaptability to future employers.

When you spend time in another country you also have a greater cultural awareness than those who don't. As with all BA degrees, employers are more interested in academic results and transferable skills than in which particular subjects were studied.
