    Geography.

    I do it because I love it, but there are some lucrative careers to be had if I want them (surveying, GIS, remote sensing, development/planning)

    Mostly, however, I just do it because it's awesome.

    I'm currently studying Journalism as I like writing. However I'm going onto study Criminology as I want to learn about the best way to commit mass homicide... amongst other reasons

    History and Philosophy. Yes, it's definitely worth it - they are interesting, so I'm motivated to study. I feel studying them broadens my knowledge base and also my understanding of the world around me. They give me something to talk about with other people and are always useful in answering questions on University Challenge! I can imagine myself going on to do a Masters, and even a PhD in either field.

    English. Not really, but I need a degree in something to get a decent job and I'm good at English with little effort. I like the subject, but nearly applied for several other things and am not convinced of it. Then again I don't actually do any studying so there we go.

    I'm studying German and Translation a) because German is my favourite subject and b) because I need a degree in German and Translation in order to become a professional translator. It's definitely worth it.

    maths with further maths.

    absolutely no practical element to it. Not to mention it's enjoyable in a way just to sit down and think

    also the satisfaction in getting a hard question right always makes me move on

    Personally, that which I find has culture, a soul and some kind of beauty.

    Formally, linguistics, though I have been neglecting my studies because I get distracted by beautiful things. Things are changing though in the winds and waters, who knows what I will be studying next December.

    I'm studying Media Arts at uni.

    I wasn't allowed to do it for GCSE or A Level because it was deemed as pointless by my parents and by a lot of my teachers, so I did subjects that I enjoyed but didn't have a passion for. It got to the UCAS stage and I had 5 offers for Theatre Studies, but in May I realised that I had stayed silent too long about the fact that I REALLY wanted to study Media. So I pulled out all my applications and applied to just one uni that I really wanted to go to for Media (initially without my parents knowing and initially without their approval. When they realised I was taking this seriously and not being irrational they calmed down and supported me 100%). And I got an offer despite all the deadlines being gone XD

    I absolutely love it. I don't care how badly it's frowned upon, I'm studying the subject that I love and I'm absolutely set on doing well (:

    Something like that mate yea. I love literature, but 'studying' it is another matter. I don't go to lectures or most classes - I'm just going through the motions enough to pass the first year really with the aim of either having more choice over modules or a course switch for the next year; hopefully this will improve the situation.

    It could be a lot worse though - at least I'm not paying 9k a year.
