Many of our undergraduate degree courses are available as Joint Honours as well as Major/Minor combinations, allowing you to combine two courses to tailor your degree to your interests and career aspirations.

Single Honours degrees see you focusing almost entirely on one main subject. Joint Honours degrees balance two subjects equally, while Major/Minor Honours degrees allow you to combine two subjects but spend a greater amount of time on one than the other. Whichever you choose, you'll be aiming for the highest academic standards in your studies. In many subjects it is also possible to transfer from a Joint Honours to Single Honours pathway at the end of the first year. 


  • tailor a degree to your individual interests, needs and career ambitions
  • 从广泛的主题中选择 - combine two subjects you know or try a new subject area
  • create your own degree - select optional modules from across two subjects according to your developing strengths and interests
  • 让自己就业 -  take work experience modules or complete a placement year to develop a wide range of skills


At the mg4355电子娱乐网址 we look after you from day one. During the first few days on campus we run a series of events to help you settle in, find your way around and prepare for university life; this is called Welcome Week. During Welcome Week we hold an event specifically aimed at Joint Honours students, providing a unique opportunity to meet fellow Joint Honours students from across the University, find out how the Joint Honours degree programme works and what it is like to be a Joint Honours student.
