    Okay so i tell people that the 'prestige' of my degree doesn't matter to me but i guess it does a bit.


    I'm going off to study the BASc at UCL with a major in Science and Engineering... but since the source is new i'm not sure how well it's regarded etc, and the Engineering projects look a bit of a joke tbh.


    Any thoughts? (No-one comments on the official thread). X

    I did this course this year. I wouldn't say it's a mickey mouse degree, but I felt a lot of the core modules contained very basic information, while the major and minor pathways didn't have enough depth to them to rival those who do pure or even combined degrees (although I did the Cultures pathway so I'm not sure how that compares to Sciences and Engineering).

    However, the course is quite new so they're still ironing out problems, plus a lot of it is very self-motivated so students do have to put in a lot of extra independent work. I hope this doesn't discourage you from doing the course though, I found that most people enjoyed it, it just wasn't for me! Hope this helps ^_^

    It's not what you do it's where you go in most cases.

    UCL is one of the best universities in the world, whatever you do I wouldn't worry as long as you have the prestige of the uni tied to your name.
