    Not everyone can do STEMs, no point in doing it if your crap at maths and science. Having a 1st or 2:1 in an arts is better than a 3rd or fail in a STEM imo.

    Also is FAME now in the same league as STEM? Or was that just made up on here?

    Also, money isn't the only motivator (according to Haslow and his experiment).

    This has already been pointed out. It was a typo.

    The world would be very boring if everybody becomes an engineer, doctor, scientist etc. It's not about the money, it's about doing something they personally enjoy

    Econ isn't STEM, it's a social science. If econ is stem then so is Politics, or middle eastern studies.
    There is so much mathematics in it that this is just plainly false. Not that that is necessarily how it should be, but as it stands it is far closer to a STEM subject than those two you mention.

    Also, I think people overrate the importance of a degree in becoming X. In some areas, yes you do need them and yes they do correlate directly to what you want to become. Yet doing a degree in business studies won't make you an entrepreneur, and doing a degree in fashion design or acting won't make you a designer or actor, respectively. In the end they are a means of studying a subject, no more, no less.

    I agree on this point. I don't see why these courses should be subsidised.

    I'd certainly take a lifetime of Rock n' Roll over a career in finance

    arts subjects

    geo at oxford makes 22 k

    econ at notts makes 28 k
    Because I hate science, maths, engineering and art is what I succeed in and what makes me happy and contains skills that I want to grow in? Also without artists we wouldn't have buildings, clothes, theatres, films, TV shows, social medi, music, concerts, even things like birthday cards. Someone's got to do it.

    Unless they're doing art at oxbridge then they'll probably get elected somewhere along the line..

    this is a bit cringe, there's so many others approach to this issue other than telling people what to study.
