    I would say history maybe? Just about anything that's not considered 'mickey mousey' will have Rah's. I'd say the majority would lie in the humanities that aren't entirely vocational. Such as history, philosophy, theology, maybe politics if you don't consider that mickey mousey.

    From my experience, you tend to get a lot in either the old respected courses like classics, archaeology, etc and in vocational courses that lead you to professional jobs, like medicine, pharmacy, etc.
    Nah, pharmacy is full of asians.

    Classics probably has a higher than average number of private school students as most state schools don't offer Latin or Ancient Greek, so it's probably fairly rah-y. None of the people I met at my classics interview seemed that way though, and only a minority at Latin Summer School.

    I do History of Art. It's not that bad, everyone on my course is fab and not remotely pretentious, I think it depends on the uni. When I went to my interview at Leeds I have to admit it was gilet and back-combing central!

      Erm, the ultimate is Land Economy (aka how to look after Daddy's estate) at Cambridge. Some serious characters there.

      Rah is like another word for prep.

      whatever princess euginie's doing - so Art History, Politics & English is a prime Rah combo imo

      course you'd also have to be at a Rah university cos Rah cannot exist in a vacuum.

      full on Economics seems like too much hard work for a proper Rah factor - and it also smacks of vulgar 'trade' donchakno - David Cameron got called 'Pleb' by the Bullingdon Rahs cos there was an ugly rumour one of his ancestors actually worked for a living 300 years ago.

      The people who think its Medicine - you're wrong - the properly rah people do something much shorter (3 rather than 5/6 years) and where they have to make much much less effort.
