It is never too early to start thinking about your next steps. Some students may be in part-time employment or know exactly what they want to do when they leave Heythrop. Some may only have a vague idea about their career, whilst others will have no idea what they will do with their degree. Don't worry! You're in good company as many students use their time at university to work out what they want to do with the rest of their life.
