What are the most overrated degrees?Watch
Student life, in partnership with UEA
i’m surprised by the lack of hate for art based degrees (coming from someone who is doing a BA in textiles) and get but the at large discussion over science based degree.
So true, so many people go into these degrees.
I'm going to study Psychology and plan on becoming a teacher from it but so many people in my course want to become psychologists, which is great but most of them don't realise how long it takes and how competitive and difficult to get into, a lot seem to think they will be guaranteed a psychology job after 3 years.
I heard a similar thing about Law too and I just don't understand, do people not research the degree beforehand? A lot of them have misconceptions about how easy it will be to get a high, well paying job.
I also agree that a lot of people go into these kinds of degrees when then don't know what else to do, I'm not sure why though.
As someone who is doing the degree and starting my final year, i found out they teach you hardly any useful stuff for industry
i have learned way more during the past 4 months of lockdown than i did in the last 2 years of university.
Enough now that i have mastered mobile development and am looking to start up a business before i go into my final year.
Keep in mind you will learn NOTHING in depth. Its quantity over quality
