    What are the stereotypes of different degrees at uni? Is it true that maths students tend to be nerds and that economics people are absolute lads?

    Sociology: Like psychology but easier
    Teaching: Losers who have no life plan (before the fires of wrath rain down on me my mum is a teacher so I can say that)

    Chemical and Biomedical: Girls who wanted to do chemistry/biology but also wanted a job at the end, or guys who picked the engineering course with the most girls
    EEE and CompSci: Guys who like computers but aren't that smart, also Asians, lots of Asians
    Aerospace: Elitists who work too hard
