    Starting a business management course with Open University in January, doing it over 3 years , in what they call" full time" - i work as a bricklayer at the moment - self employed- so can take a day off whenever i feel i need an extra full day to study , although i have a fair bit of spare time in the winter because the weather is often too bad to work anyway . Hopefully opens up a few doors for me - we earn very good money down here on the trowel these days but i would like to think i could better myself and find a more fulfilling career.

    aye mate,on my course people have all different types of degrees.make sure you get some experience in a classroom though,maybe ask your local school if you can do some voluntary work.

    Either Business related or Electrical Engineering, one a continuation of previous studies the other a complete tangent but something more interesting. Both would be relevant to my current employment though.

    Electrical engineering is a good gig, opens up a lot of (well paid) and interesting paths.

    Complex as * though. :smiley-laughing002:
