    Well yes, they're both worth doing. But when you say both it makes me think of a joint degree, but as these are two different universities I'm confused on how you'd make it happen. The two degrees don't go together. It's better if you decide which one you prefer to do than try and decide them based on how much they're worth. Your interest in a subject is what gives you the place in university.

    Ah, my mistake. The two degrees will vary slightly on what modules they offer between universities, so you should also consider that. English language at one university may be more teaching based whereas at bother university it may be more linguistics based.

    It is better to take one yes, unless you have a great interest in both. You'll also have to check whether joint degrees are possible between the two subjects with the universities themselves. I know English Language tends to be paired more with other humanities, but some universities may be more flexible on the combinations.

    It's my struggle too at the moment. I'm applying for Linguistics and English Language because the two of them have big overlaps, but some unis teach Linguistics like a undergrad teaching degree whereas others offer a Linguistics degree that covers the research aspects. Then others teach English language in the same way they teach Linguistics.

    ahh i see, i guess it's hard to understand apply them with eachother , but its not impossible, so many people do these kinds of courses, one of my teachers did sorts and maths as one degree!

    thanks again though x
