    I have come across many people applying for different courses e.g. Law, medicine, finance, neuroscience, engineering etc.

    I'm curious to know which course is in so much demand nowadays.

    It's just a thought I've always had tbh since I see so many people applying for law and medicine etc.

    So what course do you all think is mostly in demand right now and why?

    As a broad category I would say management/finance...

    For my uni I don't think any course would have had more students in Year 1 than mine (350 in maths, including some joint honours)
