If you’re trying to choose a course you’ll enjoy, you may want to rule out your A Level/Highers subjects if you’re already finding them boring. And other subjects may also be unsuitable if you dropped them because they were even more boring than that.
The good news is that university offers a whole new range of subjects.
Who knows, you may eventually find them boring too, but at least they’ll be novel for a while.
To name but a few of the degree courses not often studied at A level: anthropology, philosophy, sociology, archaeology, accountancy, law, business studies, education, engineering, psychology, politics, gender studies and zoology. There are also the weirder, wackier options like brewing, golf course management, pop music studies and cybernetics.
You may want to get a taster of these courses before committing yourself to studying them for three years. Most universities offer open days which, at the very least, usually have introductions to courses by the people who teach them, but they often also feature sample lectures. Worth a try.
There are over 15,000 degree courses on offer in the UK. If you can’t find at least one that interests you, you should probably look in the mirror and ask whether it’s really the subjects that are boring.
On the other hand, you may be overwhelmed by the fascinating range of courses on offer, and may be loathe to limit yourself to just one.
These days that’s no problem. Not every course is just ‘single honours’ (as it’s called). Oh no. Indeed, most courses require students to take some kind of subsidiary course.
