    Hello, this is Aaron Taylor from Leeds Beckett University, the most popular courses to study in the U.K. are probably business, law and some sort of medicine or health related topic. It entirely depends on what your passion is and which subject interests you the most. And I would definitely recommend to choose a subject that you enjoy doing as you'll be studying it for three or even more years.
