Combined Honours is a challenging but rewarding degree. It offers a wider range of opportunities than a single or joint honours degree can give.
You have the flexibility to choose from a wide range of subjects. You can then combine 2 or 3 of them for in-depth study in one of the most extensive degree programmes of its kind in the UK.
You'll attend the same lectures and classes as students specialising in each subject, so your studies will be at the same academic level. Importantly, though, you'll only take a proportion of the options in each subject, so your workload will be the same as any other student.
Combined Honours will help you enhance your independence, adaptability, confidence and assurance.
By studying more than one subject, you'll be able to see the world from multiple perspectives. This allows you to enhance your intellectual skills as well as your graduateness.
Benefits of studying Combined Honours

Push yourself with a variety of tasks and learn to apply your skills. Being well organised will become second nature as you keep on schedule for each of your subject areas.
