There are certainly tough degree's, don't get me wrong, but there are so many which are a waste of people's time. What makes me laugh is people who leave Uni with a degree in Sociology then bemoan the fact they can't get a job.
I see so many people who I think waste time and money when they could go out to work, earn a good living and get themselves on a career path.
If it wasn't for the fact I enjoy my degree course and pick up some valuable skills too, I'd probably one of those people. I think my degree is pretty easy, but I know I'm developing as person and improving my skills. If I wasn't, as you say, money wasted.
