So I’ve been trying to gather an understanding of how valued each degree subject is by today’s society. I’m doing this all for my own research purposes and thought this would be a good place to get an opinion.

Obviously the prestige of each degree may be subjective and many will argue cases for their own degree. However I’m trying to find out which degree do you guys think has the biggest “wow factor.”

This poll is assuming that the prestige of the university is the same across the board.

Surely the prestigiousness of the university is just as important? A degree in fine art from Oxford is more prestigious than a degree in maths from London Met lol

I elucidated that we are assuming that the prestige of the university is equal. Therefore we aren’t factoring the university it’s being studied at into the equation.

Agree with what you put though

Depends on the university as someone said.

Apart from this, Classics (which you shouldn't have put with "languages" ) and PPE.

STEM subjects and any degree with economics and finance are classed as prestigious degrees in this country. They are the biggest sectors in the UK.

stem subjects I'd say. art based courses are looked down upon a lot where as physics for example isn't.
