    Is "career" wrong here? what is an appropriate word? is "occupational" OK?

    The whole thing sounds like waffle. Also, if XYZ is the name of the university, omit "this."

    Thanks Teechar. Actually my teacher asked me to write a sentence with "pave the way" in a class. Maybe that's why it sounds waffle.
    I feel that Cambridge University can pave the way for both educational and career achievements.

    My teacher said that "career" is wrong, and only "occupation" is a good collocation in this sentence, so he marked it as a wrong word.
