hi! i think i want to study business management at uni but i’ve always wanted to combine it with something like psychology or law. i was wondering if that was a good choice or if i’d be better off doing just business or just psychology or law. i don’t necessarily want to be a manager or like work in a bank or things like that but i think being a corporate lawyer would be quite interesting and it involves both business and law. if i take just business is there a way i can still get into corporate law? i read that a lot of firms like business students because they have knowledge about business (obviously). i’ve had people tell me that doing a combined degree is really hard and that employers won’t be as impressed because it won’t be a ‘full’ degree so i’m really conflicted 😅

you dont really need a huge amount of business knowledge for corporate law imo, i think the bigger firms would much prefer a law degree [depends whether you want to work in industry or practice as well i would think potentially]
a law degree also gives you waaay more flexibility as well
as for joint honours, might give you that insight you need though to help you make an informed decision?

Do a single subject degree first - you get a choice of courses within that so you can slant the degree to what interests you.
Then, do a more specialised Masters degree after that if necessary.

Psychology is not as useful as it sounds. To work as a Psychologist you need futher qualifications / PhD - many school leavers don't realise this, and there are not enough 'other' job oppotunies to absorb all the Psych grads that Unis are now churning out.

Law is more useful. There are a wide variety of different ares of Law to specialise in - and Law is also a good training for a host of other career areas. Corporate Law is a specilsm within Law practice, and you dont need a Business or Management degree to do it. This is the sort of postgrad Law Masters degree you would do after an LLB to enter this field : https://www.sheffield.ac.uk/postgrad...ercial-law-llm

The main problem with doing LLB Law as a joint subject is that you will only do half the Law degree - the other slots on your timetable with be 'the other subject', and you'll only do half of that. So it isnt as useful as a full Law degree - and many students find it very frustrating - their Law interests develop but they can't do the specialist units that are on offer to other students of the main Law pathway.

If you can, look for extras you can add to an LLB degree like a year abroad or a work placement - these do really add to your degree rather than taking away from it. Examples - https://www.bristol.ac.uk/study/unde...-study-abroad/ or https://www.exeter.ac.uk/undergradua...law_placement/
