Art History (or even going to art school) is pretty posh IMO. can be hard becoming an artist so i guess having money helps

i did maths and there were barely any hot toff boys in my year, was flatmates with mostly nurses too and they said there weren't many "posh" people on their course

If you want to meet posh people then try lacrosse or rowing.

Engineering isn't posh... in fact, neither is maths or physics.

yeah. maths was male dominated and we had a lot of socials with engineering/physics societies too, not many "toffs" IIRC

Law inevitably has well to do people.

You need to venture into the Courtauld Institute or the Royal Agricultural College for real posh types.

I also see English and History quite "posh" but maybe that's just because all of the teachers in my school that teach those two subjects are full on POSH.
I don't view the sciences, MDV, or Maths as "posh" but they're definitely not not posh

How can you describe a degree as 'posh'? What does that even mean?
