There are some really weird things you can study. Here's some of the best! If you fancy reviewing the modules you've taken, we'd love to hear your opinion here.
1. FOOD1130, Traditional Alcoholic Beverages - University of Leeds
A genuine quote from the module summary; ‘would you like to visit breweries or a vinyard and sample the produce?’. Yes. Obviously.
2. EDUC2381, Harry Potter and the Age of Illusion - Durham University
Some of Harry Potter was also filmed in Durham. If you never got your Hogwarts letter you still can study ‘Magic, reason and reality’. Prerequisites: none.
3. W900, Aerial Performance as part of a Contemporary Circus degree - Bath Spa
Described as a ‘fusion of art forms’, you can literally take a degree that includes performing at Glasto as part of the course. Shame you have to commit to the whole two years.
4. 4BUSS002W, Entertaining London - University of Westminster
Open to almost all Westminster students, this course is the study of fun things in London. They even do ‘group field research’ on Notting Hill Carnival as part of the module.
5. C617, Golf Tour - Newman University, Birmingham
Alongside golf-science and golf coaching, there is 20 credits of playing a competitive golf tour. Probs pretty easy to mark.
6. NBS-6-ARC, Artisan Chocolate - London Southbank University
Apparently the course will ‘enable you to work in different organisational contexts’. And eats loads of chocolate.
7. COSE50581, Technical Games Production - Staffordshire University
This module comes from a whole course based on video games. Similar modules available at Staffordshire include Virtual & Augmented Reality.
8. SOUD1077, Sailing and Powerboating - Plymouth University
This module gives students ‘essential seamanship skills’ including how to sail a dinghy. I’m not joking. It’s part of a course called ‘Yacht Operations’
9. B901, Principles of Contraception - University of Central Lancaster
There is an entire degree that revolves around sexual health. Because being a nurse or GP is far too generic.
10. Musicology and the Beatles - Liverpool Hope University
It will cost you £4,500 to textually analyse the Beatles for two years.
11. 4HMDS001W, Yoga and Meditation - University of Westminster
You can only take this module if you’re enrolled in the faculty of Science and Technology.
12. AR7006, Forgetting of Air - London Metropolitan
The philosophical study of how we can’t see air? Is that even a subject?!
13. THMN1341, An Introduction to Preaching in the Contemporary World - Durham University
Open for anyone to take in their first year, whoever said higher education and religion are incompatible? Even the pope has twitter now, #helives
14. Stuff and Nonsense - Queen Mary University
Alright, this one won’t count towards your degree but at Queen Mary you have the option of doing a course in taxidermy. Equipment is provided, and they give out a prize for the best one at the end.
