Most overrated degree in your imo?Watch
Never a met a single PPE student who isn't a complete snob who thinks they're on a ticket to be a politician, without any other life experience.
I'm pretty certain that applications for PPE are based solely on imagined prestige rather than any interest or understanding of the course.
It seems far too many take it just because they don't know what to do or "enjoyed it at A Level". I've wanted to do it since I was 14 and have my entire career planned. You can be extremely successful in Psychology and earn a lot of money, but it's hard work and not many people make it, I don't think people realise this.
Tbf though it's because I have a serious interest in politics and econ above any other subject, and though I'm not aiming to be an MP, I do want to work in politics.
I'd agree though that people who take these subjects thinking it's a blagger's degree to power are probably overestimating just how useful PPE is or politics for that matter, it's one of the few courses that as the quality and prestige of your uni decreases, it becomes a lot more soft and probably a lot more useless, which is why I sorta have to get into a top uni...
With that in mind I'd still say finance. In my experience, people who do finance or accounting of some sort think it's a one way ticket to become a successful entrepreneur, banker, accountant or whatever. In my school it's the single most popular choice for people without any actual serious interest in a subject who don't really know what they want to do. Realistically maths is a lot more useful for banking and accountancy, and entrepreneurship or management of some sort does not in themselves require a degree. Finance has its uses but from personal experience, it's highly overrated.

who the **** wants to examine penises for a living
A degree that is competitive to get into at top universities, but offered by almost all universities due to the simplicity and commercially viable nature of doing so.
Competitive for places yet half of all practicing lawyers don't have one.
A degree that can be "created" using a non-competitive postgrad conversion course
In your in my opinion, it has to be English Contraction and Syntactic Studies with Grammatical Rules.
but that title literally made me shiver the lack of sense it made
