18 Times You Regretted Doing a Joint Honours Degree at University

Joint Honours students: we’re gluttons for punishment, aren’t we? Not content with studying one degree level subject, we decided to sacrifice our social lives and lives in general to do two, much to our occasional regret.

2. But then they also assume that your degree is easier than a Single Honours equivalent.

“You’re only doing half of each though, right?”

3. When people keep asking you to choose what your favourite ‘half’ is.

To be honest, I don’t like either of them a lot of the time.

4. Or when they say something like: “At least you can just pick the best modules and ignore the rest.”

Yeah… that’s not how it works.

6. Or when you accidentally start confusing which part of your degree a theory applies to.

7. When you have to spend the start of every semester trying to fix all the timetable clashes.

It’s almost like the uni didn’t know it was possible to combine these two subjects?

10. And sometimes the lecturers don’t even know who you are.

11. When each subject requires you to learn a different way of referencing.

12. And every time you end up with deadlines falling all on the same day.

13. When your lecturers for each subject all think theirs is the most important.

The struggle is real.

14. Or when you feel like you’re not learning either side of your degree properly.

15. When you end up with two very different groups of friends who can’t really be brought together.

16. And you realise you’re not going to be able to graduate with them all on the same day.

17. Whenever you start to really enjoy one subject more than the other and wonder if maybe you should’ve done Single Honours after all.

18. And finally, when someone asks what you’re planning on doing with your degree after uni.
