    i want to enter an undergraduate degree that is in a London university and that would allow me to go out 4 nights(10pm to 3-4am) a week AND have 3-4 free hours(when I could do whatever I want to) a day.
    Does a degree like that exist in x?

    Oh wait.

    Any Humanities or Social Science subject, as long as you don't mind failing it.
    on the student room forum it says social sciences subjects are:
    Business and Management, Economics, Geography and Earth Sciences, Law, Politics and International Relations, Psychology

    and arts and humanities subjects are:
    Creative Arts, Classics, English, Foreign Languages, Geography and Earth Sciences, History, Media, Film and Journalism, Philosophy

    you think all of these would let me do that?i mean,even subjects like business and management,economics,psychology, philosophy..etc?
    because for example some guys who were attending psychology said they had to work a lot..a guy said in the second year he had to work 9am-4pm every day,a girl said she studied 8 hours every day

    even with a degree that has a low amount of contact time.. you certainly have to make up for it at home.

    I only have 6 hours a week at uni, but spend much more time than that doing work
    whats your degree?

    You should have read the part where I said as long as you don't mind failing it.
    You are clearly not University material, so don't go. Get a job.
    I'm not going to help you pick a specific subject to fail at.

    Why don't you just get a part time job? Rather than wasting your money on a degree which clearly means nothing to you.
    are part time jobs common in england,especially in london?i mean,do many people have a part time job and is it easy to get one?

    because in italy,im from italy,they are very rare,and its not easy to get one

    You want to pay for a degree that will guarantee you no job at the end of it because you want to go out drinking?

    Have fun with that one.

    those degrees exist in London Metropolitan University O.N.L.Y.
    Not necessarily, I'm doing a "proper" degree at a decent uni and could probably fit that into my timetable. Yes, it would be tiring, but you are all hugely exaggerating - or spend all your free time studying non-stop. 3 hours a day and 4 10-3am nights a week is 41 hours. That leaves 127 hours for sleep and uni - I know I personally spend well under 127 hours a week on those 2 things.

    join any degree you like, don't do the work assigned to you you will have endless time, go out and party, and end up with 3rd class or fail...Some people will still mange to keep up with work along with maintaining heavy social life...

    Far less than I should. We're told we should be doing a total of 30 hours/week including contact time. I do about 3+contact.
    you study history,dont you?

    and you never do more than 9 hours of study\work a week in total?
    but you attend a uni in york i guess,dont you?
