I wouldn't rely on this at all as many factors come into play. You won't be hired for your degree, but rather experience and strengths.

I agree that's why i think work placements are very important. it gives people the chance to work in the industry and to gain experience. I know a girl who went to the Caribbean on a work placement studying tourism management and now works their in some form of marketing.

I'm quite unsure tbh. I don't have any particular passions.

There is no such thing as a top degree. There are things of your interest and then there aren't.

Just wondering why? Have you not got any interests you want to pursue? Don't just pick a degree because you think it's what other people think is good.

I can't believe it. Geology and geography didn't make it? I'm surprised, especially about the absence of the former, which at one point was one of the most lucrative degrees out there (and that wasn't too long ago).

That chart is broad subject areas. Geology and physical geography come under physical sciences

Ah yes, I didn't notice. Geography coming under physical science is a bit debatable though, because I doubt the human side comes under that. I'm surprised the Earth sciences weren't their own subject area either, but I guess it is what it is.

Physical geography is classed under physical sciences (with chemistry, physics, astronomy, forensic science, geology, ocean science and environmental science).

Human geography is classed under social sciences.

I think you’re overestimating the number of geology students in the uk if you think they warrent their own subject group.

So, where's the 'social science' subject group, or is it covered by 'social studies'? Surely, since geography contains both physical and 'social' sciences, it would be better if it had its own subject group? Isn't economics a social science? I assume it has its own subject group because there are many economics undergrads in the UK?

As you can tell, I'm a little slow here.
