    It depends on what profession you want to go into to and what class degree you get. If you get a 1st in a good uni it looks better than getting a 2:1 from a bad uni in maths for instance

    Depends! There are definitely some prestigious departments dotted all over the country It's probably not as well respected as medicine or law (certainly not in my community, anyway :bhangra: ), but they just don't understand us creative types

    It may be politically incorrect but I think the general consensus regarding degrees relative to Art/Music - is that they're Mickey Mouse degrees.

    Not because there isn't nothing to gain from those degrees, but if you've got the skill/talent in those subjects you don't really need a degree to validate it. And it doesn't offer much transferable skills in today's corporate world.

    How does one even grade Art? The view on any piece is always far too subjective as opposed to say a Math's degree where marks/grades can be carefully calculated.

    IMO if you wish to be a musician/artist you don't need to waste money on the degree. I mean most of the greatest Artists/musicians today don't have them.

    Each to his own though.
