What kind of pathway would I take to do some kind of humanitarian work? Nothing very specific in mind which is making the choice difficult, but wanting to do something 'international' in my degree, for example, have a major in International Relations.
I think you have kinda answered your own question, you can consider doing an international studies or any degree related to aid development, I think any social science related degrees would be highly useful, perhaps even say a degree allowing you to major in social policy and stuff, but ultimately work experience will be crucial to get a job in aid work-so be prepared to work overseas in third world countries during your degree (ideally as part of exchange) or you could defer your degree to get some valuable first hand experiences.
ATAR is 90 btw so if I were to go down a Law path, it would have to be at UOW so a secondary question: anyone know how law there is like...employ-ability after?
Or how could I take a Law degree to a human rights/humanitarian that sort of thing path?
Why do you want to do law? Have a careful consideration about it because you can do a masters in international law without having a law degree necessarily in undergraduate. Employability for law is very bad, and if you are in it for the prestige or money, you are likely to be severely disappointed eventually. You could study an undergraduate law degree, and when you get to your later years when you are able to do your electives, you can choose international law related subjects. But to work in international humanitarian law, say at the UN or at the Hague, is incredibly competitive and arguably only the very top of the top will make it. (We are talking about people who are worthy of winning the University Medal type of level-so like first in their whole grade at uni across their entire degree).
Hope this helped a bit
