PPE is just a jack of all trades, master of none degree. If you're unsure what to specialise in then it's a good alternative degree it's definitely overrated because of the whole Oxbridge PPE thing. If you're not doing it at Oxford or another top uni then it's just like any other interdisciplinary degree

Hi Oliver!

I am about to start my second year studying PPE at Lancaster and I absolutely love it.
Like others have said, it is a particularly great course if you are unsure of what you want to do in the future and you don't want to limit your options.
In my experience, studying three subjects is super helpful because you get a much more well-rounded understanding of lots of different topics.

I created a video talking about what a typical day for a PPEist looks like, which you can see here

Look luck with your applications and if you have any other questions, feel free to ask
