Errr.....not really. The knowledge and skills obtained from the degree still has relevance.(Original post by baby sexy)
The fact that she is having to take a further degree states the fact that first one was a load of ******* .
How do you know she is taking another degree? The member in question didn't say her sister is taking another degree, not as far as I'm aware. What she is probably doing is taking the Graduate Diploma in Law. This is quite a common route for solicitors (with around 50% of solicitors coming from a non-law background). This is a one year course.
It allows students, who already have a degree, to convert to law following their undergraduate degree. As a result an undergraduate is needed and her degree was therefore useful. It allowed her to get onto the course.
She would need to take this course even if she studied what you think is a useful degree, physics or engineering for example.

Dunno, most grad scheme employers just want a 2.1 from a good university. If you feel really doubtful do a masters in history after your degree and it'll all be cool.

History and Education studies =/= History and Education. That is quite obviously lying, you can't omit and scrabble words in your degree because by doing so you are trying to gain an advantage. And it is not always 50:50 of each subject.

Please give it to me straight, in these troubled times, will I be unemployable in areas other than teaching?
I study Education studies and History at Durham University.
I need brutal honesty.
