Sigh... this has been done to death since the tsr domain was purchased years ago.
That's some original "research" you've done there...
mods should close this thread
The premise may be true (there may be differences in workload depending on the subject and who's teaching it), but the conclusion is shet
I'm actually surprised that the OP isn't a one-gem troll.
Sorry to break it but your state of the art very exquisite research doesn’t add up, I know someone who went to a ‘top 10’ but still works in retail and someone who went to a ‘below average’ uni who now earns 40k+ a year in their field of study 2 years after graduating. Truth is it’s all down to who you are and what your real capability is because real life is different than the life you know in books.
Well, the reason people do is that they can use their degrees from other non top 30 universities to compete for largely the same jobs when they graduate.
Generally, the subject of a degree matters more than the place where you studied it.
Why study Dentistry at UCLan when you can study it at Cambridge innit
Because some people want to go to university but perhaps:
a) They don't necessarily like the top ones
b) They want to stay at home and the top 30 don't allow that
c) They don't have the grades to go to a top uni
There's no need to judge people
Other than anything else, the number of modules is completely irrelevant. Everybody does the same number of credits a year, they're just split differently. I'm doing 9 modules this year (8 which are worth 10 credits, and 1 which is worth 40 credits). My flatmate - same uni, different subject - is doing 12 modules this year, each 10 credits.
I would be surprised if it's true that top 30 unis do more modules than other unis, but even if it is true, that doesn't mean that they're doing any more credits. It just means that the work is being divided into smaller chunks at top 30s.
