Choosing your major field of study is an extremely important decision that you should take your time to think about and research. The most important factor to consider is which subjects you enjoy. This is the most important place to start because if you enjoy something you are much more likely to do well. You will spend a long time working on this subject and it will consume your whole life for many years so enjoying it is absolutely vital.

If you enjoy the subject, you will also find that you have a lot in common with your fellow classmates and this will make studying easier and more enjoyable. If you are finding it difficult to choose a particular subject that you enjoy, think about other things in life that you enjoy. It may be sports or computer games or fashion but there will always be a subject that incorporates an aspect of your hobby. If there are two subjects that you particularly enjoy, consider a joint honors degree.

The second thing you need to think about when choosing your major field of study is what you are good at. You may have a natural flair for maths or English and if you do, you should make the most of this talent. This will make studying easier and more enjoyable.

The final thing you should consider is your future career aspirations. If you have a particular career in mind then you may require certain qualifications in order to do that job. Speak to people who are already working in the field you wish to work in and ask what qualifications they have and what they think is important to do that job.

Never choose your major field of study based on what your friends are doing or from what your parents believe you should study. Remember to thoroughly research the subject to find out exactly what you will be studying. When you are explaining your reasons for picking your subject, ensure you make it clear that you enjoy the subject and believe that it will help you in your final career.
