You could realise yourself in marketing by creating graphics, posters or animations. Think about what you really enjoy and start working in that direction. Many universities and colleges offer degree programmes tailored to today’s market requirements. And what industries are you sure to find work in?

Which field of study is worth choosing?

The dynamic environment and the fast-paced development of technology mean that the market is in constant need of IT specialists with a variety of competencies. In this sector you can count on very good salaries and interesting work. There is also no shortage of jobs in other areas such as finance or medicine. Qualified specialists in sales and marketing are also needed. The pandemic has shown how important supply chains are, and logistics is closely linked to this. What is worth knowing about these fields of study?

IT Specialist Is One Of The Most Desired Professionals

The industry is booming, and this is not likely to end any time soon. Applications, systems, cloud solutions and even metaverse are the essence of the digital world, which you need to be able to translate into accessible solutions for people. Only then does the work make sense. Then its fruits are useful for specific industries or, more broadly, for humanity as a whole. IT specialists include programmers, big data analysts or specialists in hardware, i.e. computer hardware.

Are you interested in the digital world or perhaps in the principles of processor design and operation? Check yourself out as a specialist in this particular field. IT specialists are well-paid experts whose salary is significantly (often several times) higher than the national average (Poland/UK). 

Studying abroad opens up great opportunities. A diploma from a British university gives the chance to find an interesting and well-paid job, often better compared to other universities in Europe. In the 2022 Academic Ranking of World Universities (ARWU) report, one can find Cambridge (5th place) or Oxford (10th place).

In comparison, Warsaw University and Jagiellonian University were ranked between 301 and 400. Even if you choose another British university from outside the list, chances are that it will be better regarded globally than its Polish, German or French counterparts

The financial industry needs not only sales professionals, but also strategists, investors and brokers, not always working on the front line. Managers, i.e. people with a degree in team management, are also useful. Of course, this is mainly about competences related to finance, but a good manager, director or senior manager is certainly able to cope in different environments.

Finance is also about insurance or accounting, which are core services in global markets. There will certainly be no shortage of well-paid jobs for qualified professionals.

Lawyers Urgently Needed!

Signing a mortgage contract? Perhaps you could use a lawyer’s opinion to catch all the crocks. Are you buying a company, a large shareholding or maybe you need support with treasury matters?Again, you will need a lawyer. This profession is considered to be very prestigious. However, it is not about glitz, but a challenging and well-paid occupation. 

You have many career paths to choose from: from solicitor to judge. You can be self-employed or employed by a large law firm. Choose the specialisation that interests you most, such as criminal law, corporate insolvency or IPOs, i.e. the first issue of securities on the stock market. The market needs these types of specialists and a good lawyer is at a premium.

The other professions are well known. The fact that they are included in this and many other lists (e.g. Hays) confirms the demand for specialists in these industries.

Language skills are worth mentioning. English is the dominant language in business around the world, but knowing other languages is an added advantage that can come in handy. Studying abroad is a good opportunity to acquire specific competences that are useful for later work. By choosing a UK university, you will improve your vocabulary and communication skills which will prove very helpful in your day-to-day work.
