A radio programme is interviewing students who are about to graduate, to find out what they intend to do. Read and make a note of what they have been studying and their plans/ideas about their future career.


I’ve just done a degree in Drama and education, so I’ll probably end up teaching drama in a secondary school. I suppose, but I’m not going to apply for anything this year. Right now, I want to get away from education and do some travelling, probably to the West Indies. I’ve got family in Trinidad, so I’m hoping to go there for a few months, and maybe find some kind of job there.


I’ve just finished a degree in Ancient History and I’m about to join the army for five years! I’ve applied and been accepted, and I’m starting my training in September, assuming I pass my medical.


I’m just finishing my final exams in fashion, and it’s been incredibly hard work. So first I’m having a holiday with my family back home in California. I’m leaving in five days, I’m so excited! After that I’m planning to do a master’s degree in Fashion design. I’ve applied for a course, and I’ve been accepted if I get good grades in my exams, so I’m hoping!


I’m about to graduate in modern languages, Spanish and Russian and I’ve already been accepted for a job as a trainee manager with an international clothing company. I’m due to start work at the beginning of September, so I’m having a couple of months’ break over the summer. I’m going to find a beach somewhere nice and hot for a couple of weeks in August, hopefully, and then after that I’ll start work. I’m really looking forward to it.


My degree is in Business studies, but I’m thinking of applying for a course in journalism, but I’m not sure yet. It’s a bit of a change, but I think that’s what I want to do.


I’ve just finished a law degree, but I’m definitely not going to be a lawyer. I’ve realized I hate the law! I’ve basically got no idea at all what I want to do. I suppose I’ll do some kind of temporary job for the next months; work in a shop, or do telephone sales or something, and then see what happens. Hope that I get some idea.
