Alright guys, can you give me a list of subjects to get a degree in? Or I suppose, good/in demand jobs, so perhaps something that doesn't even need a degree, just a course of some kind. Basically something that will lead to a career. Something, anything with good employment prospects/earning potential. Preferably something I could use to get work elsewhere in the world, and even more preferably, North America. It can be anything, anything at all. Just assume whatever the requirements are, I already do or will meet them, and whatever it is, I'll study my ass off for it. There's a few I have in mind but I imagine I've overlooked a few too, so I figured it doesn't hurt to ask as I might hear of something new that I haven't come across/thought of.

For those asking why, I'm just looking for possibilities to turn my life around and perhaps settle down somewhere instead of bouncing place to place, job to job.

See page 28 onwards. Medicine and dentistry grads have the highest salaries, followed by STEM and economics grads. The poorest prospects are faced by graduates in psychology, design, English and journalism. Perhaps surprisingly, law and biological sciences students also struggle after graduation.

Don't want to highjack OP's thread, but is there a similarly exhaustive study of earnings by skilled trade?

I haven't been able to find any statistics that would be relevant on an individual level. Skilled manual work is simply too diverse to draw useful conclusions. For workers in traditional construction trades, business skills are at least as valuable as vocational skills.

What I can tell you is that on aggregate, low-level vocational qualifications have no significant effect on lifetime earnings. The most valuable vocational qualifications are high-level qualifications (HNC/HND) in engineering-related subjects, which are worth about half as much as the average undergraduate degree.

Go and work on a cruise ship. I have a few mates who basically get paid to dick around on ships sailing in the Caribbean and to places like Fiji.

Is it silly to go back and try to study for a degree in Dentistry when you are 30?

A 30 year old won't be retiring until they're a supercentenarian at this rate, so maybe not.

Not at all, if your lifestyle allows you to leave work and study full time. If you already have a degree then you're on your own regarding funding, but it's certainly not too late.
