I always thought there were quite a lot of jobs in physio?
Yeah, there used to be, and on the surface it seems to be the sort of vocational type thingy that leads to jobs (albeit not on the same sort of pay-scale as a law or medicine degree), but apparently the fact that its been so glamorised, ie people seeing it as a way to associate with sportspeople or famous people etc, has led to a large increase in the numbers taking it, far exceeding actual demand. Actual demand for the degree mainly lay in the NHS or other health services, not at Liverpool or Manchester United's training grounds. And even here, it was never particularly large, compared with, for example, the demand for nurses or paediatricians.

I didn't know which to pick! Couldn't there have been an option for a REALLY dumb degree, like that Beckhamology one or something lol.

Beckhamology was never actually a degree, I think that it was an elective or something on a social science course at an ex poly.

History is probably one of the most academic subjects ever, quite how it got on this list I don't know.

All but physiotherapy are offered by the top Unis - Oxbridge included. I wouldn't say that they were anything but respected.
Physiotherapy never used to be a dgree subject, and is only valid for a career in that field - I really can't see it makeing an impact outside of it - unlike a Medicine, Law or other 'vocational' degrees, which are transferable.

I think too many people are associating academic with difficulty. If it wasn't for historians I wouldn't be watchinf Battlefield Britain

The growth in physiotherapy is huge at the moment. People are starting to see the use in it for more basic injuries whereas it always used to be just for people who couldn't walk/had broken their back etc. Sure, you might not get a job at a football club, but the amount of smaller practices is just exploding.

I think all of those degrees are respectable. However, I suppose that perhaps Business is better studied as an MBA rather than undergrad.

id say geography coz its one of the less well paid jobs
i dont know why many people have voted business, yes people tend to find it an easy subject, but chances are that if you study something with business you'l end up getting good pay etc.

Not necessarilly. People with geog degrees are just as likely to go into some sort of general management 9-5 as someone with a business&management degree.

I always thought that Business was one of the most respected degrees. I'm shocked that so many people have voted for it. I tried to do Business degree last year, but nobody would accept me for it, hence I did English.
