Alright, perhaps this question has been answered here already, though by browsing through the forums I haven't yet been able to come to a final conclusion, so I thought I might as well try to explain my situation a bit more thoroughly. I'm a pretty successful, 24-year-old law graduate from Slovenia (in terms of GPA attained and the percentile that puts me in) that has now for a bit over seven months been employed in a law firm as a "junior associate" (it's hard to directly translate the nature of my work into US/UK terms, I guess, but this should do). Though some may think I have it going for me, I see it diferently, as the pay is low (below average) and the working hours normally come to around 50hrs/week. Consequently (but not merely because of that) I am quite dissatisfied with my current job, and this has led me to question whether law is really my "calling". Therefore I've started thinking of other options and other studies I might pursue, and after some consideration I've narrowed it down to Maths and Physics, as I was very good at both and I enjoyed both, as well. So I started looking for undergraduate study options abroad (Canada and UK, the US universities wouldn't let me in due to me already having an undergraduate degree), as well as exploring what career options I would have with studying with either of those. As I don't want to merely work with statistics, teach, or be in finance as an analyst, I've scratched Maths and am now left with Physics, in regards to which I have to say I'm a big fan of science in general and am truly interested in finding the underlying logic of this world's functioning. Though I was thus determined to apply for Astrophysics - as this field interest me most - I'm now having doubts due to the nature of work I might do after graduating. I would love to do something with astronomy, but it seems these jobs are not aplenty. That's why I figured I'd be better off applying for a Physics degree, as I'm interested in nuclear physics, quantum mechanics, the world of particles, optics, etc. as well. However, I am not that interested in electronics, programming, building machines for factories etc., and browsing through this forums has led me to conclude that with a B.Sc. or a Master's it would be a very realistic chance I'd finish with a job dealing with these areas. Q.That is why my questions are as follows. Would I, with a B.Sc. in Physics (I'd love to pursue a Ph.D., but money IS an issue, as I'm not sure how I'd even finance my undergraduate studies) have a realistic chance of working with Astronomy and other areas mentioned above that interest me? And added to that, could I switch to Engineering if I saw it interests me? Because I don't wanna start studying Engineering as only a couple of branches interest me, such as Nuclear Engineering, Aerospace (and Aeronautic) Engineering, perhaps Civil Engineering to a degree, but definitely not Electrical Engineering. Basically, would I -with no additional formal qualifications or another complete change of study - be able to do what I listed as my fields of interest and how big are my chances, presuming I do good in my studies? Because as much as I'm getting miserable where I'm currently working, I doubt I'd be better off dealing with those areas of Physics that I have no interest in. Thanks in advance for your help and I hope this wasn't too long and tedious to read.
