Courses we offer

The University constantly reviews its offer to students to ensure our courses are up-to-date and relevant to both students and employers. Due to a nationwide drop in demand for combined courses in favour of an increased employer focus on single honours courses, we have decided to change our published offer for 2018 entry.

Combined options have now been withdrawn and an exciting new offer of ‘joint’ single honours degrees will be available. These degrees have been created to reflect the popularity of certain pairings of subjects, but will be offered as a complete course without the need to pair up two subjects to create a combined course.

The University is looking to offer the following courses for 2018, subject to approval:

Undergraduate courses

Postgraduate courses

Undecided? We'll wow you.

Well-rounded degrees

The chance to study two subjects in one well-rounded degree is a great opportunity to do something unique, but also to provide potential employers with the multi-skilled graduate they so often demand in today’s job market.

Whatever course you choose, you can take advantage of University-wide initiatives to help you get the most out of your time as a student. These include the Study Abroad scheme that can take you to another country for one or two semesters, the Leading Lights programme for developing leadership skills, and a Mentoring scheme that offers to match you with an appropriate professional mentor.
