In choosing a course and definite areas of study, a student should be guided by personal inclinations, fields of excellence and aspirations towards a future career. Undergraduate degree B.A. and B.A. (Hons.) offer various academic courses which are flexible enough either to enable the individual to carry on with postgraduate degrees (M.A., M.Phil., PhD.), or to undertake additional professional training to fill a wide spectrum of careers. Thus, for example, a student who completes a 3-year B.A. or B.A. (Hons.) course can follow a one-year full-time course in the Faculty of Education and obtain a Postgraduate Certificate in Education (PGCE) enabling him/her to become a professional teacher in Private or State schools. Holders of M.A., M.Phil. and/or PhD. qualify directly for the teaching profession at the Junior College and the University.
Past experience has shown that B.A. and B.A. (Hons.) students, with, in certain cases, some additional professional qualifications, had the opportunity of filling any one of the jobs connected with the following areas: Broadcasting; Journalism; Librarianship; Archivistry; the Foreign Office; Civil Service; Ministerial Secretarial careers; Offshore Banking; Psychology; Public Relations; Personnel Management; Advertising; Banking; Insurance Secretarial careers; Civil Aviation; Political careers including M.P.'s; Public Records; Social Work; Social Administration; Labour Inspectors; Translators and Interpreters; Business and Trade Translators; Museum Curators; Police Officers; Military Officers; Musicians and Entertainers; Drama School Teachers; Script Writers; Proof Readers; Professional Tourist Guides; Tour Operators and Travel Agents.
