Music vs Music and Physics (joint honours)

    • Thread Starter

    I am really worried about whether to apply for a single or joint honours degree in music and/or physics (maths in the worst case scenario cause only 2 unis offer that kind of course). I've heard that it is more interesting but requires nearly twice the work and especially if the 2 subjects are not related to each other (like mine for example), the situation gets even tougher, more study, pressure, essays are required and the final year is like hell. Any help and suggestions?

    It won't be double the work but you might find it's more like 60:60 than 50:50.

    Whether it's for you or not, only you can decide. I personally applied for biochemistry and music but changed my mind as it isn't a good idea for work in the sciences. If, however, music is your main focus then it probably matters less.
