Best degrees for mediocre students?

So far I was thinking about cyber security , supply chain management or accounting and finance?
Don't really understand the question. Best in what way?

How mediocre?
Hello @necessary-calaba,

Firstly, it's important to recognise that academic performance is not the only measure of one's potential for success. Everyone has unique strengths, and there are numerous degree options that can lead to fulfilling and successful careers.

Secondly, it is worth nothing that academic performance at school is not the sole predictor of future success, and it certainly does not define one's potential for academic or professional achievement. Those who face challenges in school often go on to excel in their chosen careers and fields of study.

If you have struggled to achieve top-grades in a traditional academic setting in the past, you may want to consider the flexibility offered by institutions such as LIBF, which offer future-focused skills development, and empowering, personalised support, anytime, anywhere, both part-time or full-time.

You can find further information on some of the above mentioned degrees, with useful insights into how to prepare for a degree in these subjects, curriculum, potential career paths, salary expectations and much more by checking out our study guides:

Wishing you all the best as you make a decision on your next steps in higher education!
