We’ve trawled the UK higher education landscape to dig out some of the best degrees you’ve probably never heard of

A quick search of uni courses on UCAS brings up a whole array of weird and wonderful degree subjects that not only help you to stand out from the masses, but also make for a pretty good conversation-starter at the pub.

Looking for the right degree for you? Read on and you might come across your ideal (if a little unusual) university subject.

Viticulture and Oenology

Nope, we didn’t know what these words meant either, but it turns out that they’re both to do with the consumption of booze.

A BSc (Hons) degree with the Wine department at Plumpton College teaches you all about the science of grape-growing and wine-making, and is said to set you right up for a career in wine production.

Ethical Hacking

‚Ethical‘ and ‚hacking‘ are two words you might not expect to go together. But at the University of Abertay in Dundee, you can discover everything you could ever need to know about computer hacking and cybersecurity on their Ethical Hacking course.

If you’re not much of a computer whizz, this degree will be news to you, but for anyone immersed in the world of computer science and online security, this course is old hat.

Brewing and Distilling

Students and alcohol go together like gin and tonic. Why not embrace this by enrolling on the MSc Brewing and Distilling degree at Heriot-Watt University in Edinburgh?

This is actually a pretty popular degree and career path (alcohol is big business in the UK), so you’ll need to fight off some stiff competition by having a keen interest in science and the brewing process, as opposed to just drinking the produce (although that would still be an undeniable perk).

Top employers in the beverage industry often hunt down students with this degree, so contrary to what many might think, graduate employment rates are high.

Ethnobotany

Obsessed with decorating your uni home with greenery? Humans have historically had a super interesting relationship with plants, which you can learn all about on the MSc Ethnobotany course at the University of Kent.
