    I saw in the UCL prospectus there are degrees such as Audiology, speech sciences etc and they don't have really high entry requirements, but I assume that they will guarantee decent paying jobs.
    Does anyone know of similar degrees??

    Most health-related degrees are competitive though, and require work experience.
    If you do a vocational course you will need to be dedicated, they will soon pick up on it if you aren't.

    I know these aren't degrees but look into become a plumber/surveyor/electrician. You can earn very decent money if you put the work in.

    Nursing is a low paying career usually, and architecture is very competitive.

    Nor is it particularly well paid either.

    Plumbing. Let's face it, if you can charge a customer 100 pounds to change a washer it must be well paid.
