    Your ”dream” education … ?

    Let’s assume that you were a royalty and that you accordingly had unlimited admission and funding possibilities.

    In addition, you wouldn’t have to use your degree (earning money, get a job, etc.).

    Which education would you take?

    Personally, I would choose the following degrees:

    B.A. Philosophy, Politics and Economics, University of Oxford.
    M.A. Political Science, University of Aarhus.
    Ph.D. Philosophy, Princeton University.

    + visiting student at LSE, Sorbonne, and other famous schools
    BA Jurisprudence, University of Oxford.
    Bachelor of Civil Law, University of Oxford.
    LLM Intellectual Property Law, University of London.
    Bar Vocational Course at the Inns of Court (London) and registered with Gray's Inn.
    Something in advanced constitutional law at somewhere ancient.
    Anglo-Saxon, Norse, and Celtic Studies, University of Cambridge.
    MSc/Diploma in Applied Meteorology, University of Reading.
    UEFA coaching qualifications and probably a sporting degree to go with it.

    I would love to learn to fly some jet fighters like the MiG-31, Eurofighter, F14A Tomcat etc without having to go into the armed forces.

    My ideal education has almost no relation to the various courses at various universities actually because I know one can learn pretty much whatever one wants these days without attending any university at all. My definition of education would be pretty broad in the sense that I think education isn't and shouldn't be limited in the classrooms and lecture theatres. I think personal cultivation and development is sorely lacking in formal education so my ideal education is one which includes life-long moral and philosophical education (particularly one in the tradition of Confucian philosophy which grooms morally upright and socially conscious scholars or 'jun zi') and a broad-based multidisciplinary curriculum.

    I really want to do a PhD Informatics in Manchester, if I do good in my BSc or MComp degree. However, the problem is funding.

    Well I'm already at Cambridge.

    BA -- Cambridge (Classics, although I may take part II philosophy, so philosophy and Classics)
    B.Phil. -- Oxford
    either D.Phil. -- Oxford, or Ph.D. at Harvard, Stanford, or Princeton.

    Although I may interlard that with an additional Master's degree, or some time at somewhere like the Ecole Normale Supérieure. Then after that a Research Fellowship, some time as an assistant professor in America, then a lectureship and, ultimately, a professorship at Oxford.

    (1) An MMath/Msci degree at Warwick, with a 1st.
    (2) Certificate of advanced mathematics (Tripos III) at Cambridge.
    (3) A phd at any one of Oxford, Cambridge, ICL, UCL, Warwick or Bristol.
    That's all wishful thinking though

    Nah, I don't regret typing that.

    A degree in AI involves the interface between computer science, psychology, philosophy, linguistics and mathematics.

    I'm not sure about the jobs for AI though.
