Going to be 100% honest. I love my job (I'm an academic, as you know). Here is the lowdown. Its a b**ch at times Al. I can get stupidly busy, always take work home with me, which means evenings, weekends and annual leave/holidays I will often have to work. I have pressure on me to do my teaching to the highest high standard, generate income for the University, conduct research, etc. With my role I essentially organise and manage two undergrad degrees and deal with red tape, bureaucracy and rubbish daily on top of the expected stuff I did above.

It can be overwhelming.

But you know what, it isn't really work mate. Yep it stressful and busy but everyday I learn something new. I am in an environment where knowledge is everywhere and I work with experts in all manner of fields. The University have paid for me to become even more educated (they paid for my post-grad teaching and doctorate education) and made time available for me to do it. I teach people about stuff I am genuinely fascinated by all the time and they appreciate it. At the end of the academic year this year I had a bunch of my students email me to say how much of an influence I had been on them and that they wanted to thank me for all that I had done.

How amazing is that?

Mate. I've done some hard, hard work over the years and this is not one of them. If you want a job/career like this, then do it.

You will need level 7 education at the minimum. That means an MSc. Get experience of teaching if you can. So, get work at a college / further education institute, keep applying for any PhD opportunties that come up and get as much experience as you can as a consultant / strength coach. If you can pick up teaching-related qualifications then do it.

Depending on the roles that come up, you do not "have" to have a PhD. Case in point, this past week I interviewed a bunch of people for one of my courses and for the role I wanted someone with lots of experience working within industry. The guy we appointed did not have a PhD or even an MSc. He has, however, been a high level coach and done a ton of work in his field.

I think the stuff you will be doing with BWL will be a great start.
