My Interest in Education and Business.
Throughout life, my aspiration in terms of prospective careers has been shared by both education and business.
The allure of an education degree to me is the prospect of someday stimulating the minds of young individuals and becoming an influential figure in their lives.

The subject allows me to apply theory to real life situations, such as the theory of price elasticity within the consumer market. It is also my view that a degree in this subject will allow me to investigate in depth business, obtain valuable work experience, and obtain the vital skills that I will be able to apply in the world of work.
My current Advanced level studies are very demanding, but are the most beneficial academic programmers that I have taken part in. I enjoy the classroom teaching in a lecture style environment, but also get personal fulfillment from carrying out independent research, and adding my views to assignments that are set. I have recently enjoyed analyzing the relative success and criticisms of the national curriculum in Sociology, which included analyzing evidence from theorists such as Denis Lawton.

I consider this independent learning process as very beneficial and is a characteristic of undergraduate study that will best suit me.
As well as my compulsory educational programmed, I regularly involve myself in extracurricular activities. I have taken part in the Young Enterprise scheme...
