Before commencing tertiary study, it is likely that you may have little knowledge about the breadth of courses and occupations in this field. We strongly recommend that you research the course you are interested in and ask the provider to suggest organisations that employ people in the field so that you can go and talk to some of them. You may be surprised how pleased people are to talk about their work, even if you ring up out of the blue.
