‘So You Want To Be A…’ Careers Guides

HEON has prepared a number of guides to raise awareness amongst students on the possible career and study pathways available to them. The guides have been divided into the following strands, each of which covers a wide range of careers related to these fields:

  • Business
  • Engineering
  • Medicine
  • Science
  • Arts and Languages
  • Humanities

Each guide outlines practical information on how to best access a particular course/career. For every course/career listed on the guides, you can expect to find recommendations and guidance on things such as:

We hope that these guides will provide a great starting point for students, parents/carers and anyone advising young people to find out more about future career pathways in industries or areas of interest. Further research should be conducted if you intend to apply for a specific course as exact entry requirements can differ between institutions. It should also be noted that most higher education courses will have a minimum GCSE requirement. The guides have lots of links to websites and resources to find out more, too.
