Here's What Bill Gates Reckons Young People Should Study At College

Here's What Bill Gates Reckons Young People Should Study At College

Bill Gates - the richest person in the world - has offered young people his advice on what they should study. So, probably listen up, eh?

In a Twitter threat earlier this week our Bill said if he were to go to college now, he would study artificial intelligence, biosciences or energy. I don't think I've got enough UCAS points to get on any of those courses.

The Microsoft co-founder said those areas were 'promising fields where you can make a huge impact'.

He also used the thread to tell his followers 'intelligence takes many forms'.

And revealed his one big regret...you ready for this? He wrote: "When I left school, I knew little about the world's worst inequities. Took me decades to learn."

I thought he was going to say not buying Twitter or something, but I suppose that's a good one, too.

He urged his young followers to act now and start fighting equality. Posting: "You know more than I did when I was your age.

"You can start fighting inequity, whether down the street or around the world, sooner."

He then recommended we all read this book:

The book, The Better Angels of Our Nature: Why Violence Has Declined, was written in 2011 by Steven Pinker.

The author argues that global violence has declined throughout history and offers explanations as to why this has occurred.




Before finishing with these words of wisdom: "This is an amazing time to be alive. I hope you make the most of it."

I would if I had your cash in the bank, Bill.
