What our world leaders studied at school (spoiler: nobody studied corruption)

An incredible map has just popped up on Reddit by user mareyv taking a look at the world leaders and heads of state, and what they studied for the highest degree earned. David Cameron (UK) and Tony Abbott (Australia) both earned ‘the interdisciplinary Politics, Philosophy, and Economics degree from Oxford University’, while other leaders studied anything from natural sciences and law to medicine.

Any surprises here? Kinda. Did you know the Prime Minister of the State of Palestine studied linguistics? Or that Russia’s Prime Minister Medvedev studied law? Or that Edi Rama, Prime Minister of Albania, has an arts background? Oh, but most surprisingly, did you know that the King of Cambodia studied classical music and even taught ballet in Paris?
