Working in Physics at 32

  1. Apr 14, 2010 #1

    At 32 I've decided to have a change of career and have enrolled in a Maths course with the Open University here in the UK, the eventual aim is to move towards Physics.

    As I'm progressing I'm going to have make a decision as to what area I focus on. By the time I complete the undergraduate degree I'll be about 35 and I'm wondering if there is an area of physics that will be more favorable to study with regards to finding employment....

    For example I'm considering focusing more on Maths and Computer Science. Or would a more practical hands on Physics degree be of more use?

    I'm not interested in teaching (coming from that background originally) or accountancy/economics. I putting myself through this to work in 'science'.

    Any help greatly appreciated.

    Many Thanks

    Hi - thanks for the reply. Could I ask has that been a good move? Did you want to move into Computer Science or did circumstances push you in that direction?
