I fully take this on board but would like to raise on point.

I have a non aviation degree but I highly disagree that it's not going to help me. I majored in Automotive Engineering and most of the modules were combined with aeronautical students. The same rules of aerodynamics apply to aerofoils of all shapes, whether they are designed to produce lift or downforce. I'm sure that anyone who's majored in any similar field will benefit from understanding the theory of flight prior to commencing training.
