Capital Breakfast with Roman Kemp 6am - 10am
You'll be spending three years (at least) at university, so why do it studying a boring subject?! These are the top courses that are genuinely real. No. Seriously. They're actual things.
Your time at university isn't all partying, drinking, raving and flirting... It is - sorry - studying too.
But that doesn't have to be a bad thing. Not when you can study these genuinely genuine courses. *packs up computer and heads to University of Rochester.)
"And today, class, your homework is to... Erm, just sort of walk out of this lecture hall. So, yeah. Wow. All of you just passed. And for those of you returning next term, we'll tackle 'Jogging: 101'."
We've already spent about fifty hours of our lives watching GoT, so we reckon we could fluke a 2:1, at least, in the final exam. Just try to excuse the tear marks on our paper when we get to the "hold the door" question. (But be warned; you don't just study the TV show - you have to read all of that Ye Olde English in the books. Good luck with that.)
It's a pretty sound course, to be fair. Imagine all of the job opportunities that will open up for you once you know how E.T. was made. Just know that the PowerPoint presentation isn't for the faint of heart.
Is this actually a thing?! You can do an actual course in learning how to scale a tree? People pay their hard earned money for someone to teach them on a subject they've been doing since they were a little kid? What's next; "How to Watch Television"?
We're not gonna lie - we do kinda understand the logic behind this one. Some of the greatest minds and most esteemed scholars are probably still trying to work out how Cyrus went from an adorable teen icon to an all-twerking, nipple-flashing, tongue-swirling party girl. If you manage to solve it, you pretty much just own the university campus, we think.
If we look back at our time at university, it just consisted of skipping lectures to watch movies like 'Shaun of the Dead'. The best part is, you don't even have to skip lectures to do that at Columbia.
Worried that you can't make it to the seminar because you're too tired from the night before? Just roll around, grab your charging phone and take a quick snap. If you send that to the professor, you pretty much, immediately become teacher's pet and can afford a few more Z's. What's not to love?
This is a crash course in everything about... Ice cream. How did you guess?! We're just concerned as to why it's called 'Short Course'? What happened to the 'Long Course'?! We're imagining a lot of brain-freeze-related injuries.
If you've headed to your first lecture stark naked, because you haven't learnt anything from the course yet, we can tell you this already... University is not for you.
