    I don't think anyone should choose a Philosophy degree for its employability, unless they want to become a vicar. I think you should definitely choose it as a degree if you like it and will do well, but if you are looking for employability just do what the rest of the planet seem to be doing and choose Business Studies.

    I think it's a general academic course just as Law, English, History, Maths, Physics etc are. Your career prospects are what you make of them as a result, which means getting work and leadership experience, developing your transferrable skills and applying to jobs that make use of those same transferrable skills.

    70-80% of grad jobs don't require a certain degree subject, make of that what you wish.

    Personally, only do this course if you want to study it for the 3+ years you'll be at uni for
