The most common phrase of an uni graduate in the arts. (mind you it would be hady as a poster here)
Studying ARTS at uni is a waste of time - financually...
One of the bitterest and most time-worn debates in student union bars up and down the country is resolved today as academic research confirms that in
financial terms at least, arts degrees are a complete waste of time.
Getting through university boosts student's earnings by 25%, on a weighted average, or £220,000 over their lifetime, according to Professor Ian
Walker of Warwick University - but if they study Proust or the peasants' revolt instead of anatomy or contract law, those gains are likely to be
completely wiped out.
