Subject

Combined studies

Flexible Combined Honours (FCH) gives you the opportunity to study otherwise unavailable or unusual subject combinations and to customise your degree programme, making it distinctive and different. This is usually done by choosing two subject areas for your first year. It is sometimes possible to take a third subject as a minor one, such as a foreign language – please ask about this before applying. You can also follow one of the readily available themed pathways such as Mediterranean Studies or Historical, Political and Sociological Studies for the whole or part of your study from your first year.

You can combine subjects in various proportions and the proportion can change each year, provided any core, compulsory modules are taken. You can also drop a first year subject and start a new one or follow a new themed pathway from the second year.

The following subject areas are available through FCH – you can combine any two unless otherwise stated:

•Accounting ?
•Ancient History
•Anthropology
•Arabic
•Archaeology
•Art History & Visual Culture
•Biochemistry %
•Biological Sciences: Molecular and Cellular Biology

This information is from the Higher Education Statistics Agency (HESA).

You can use this to get an idea of who you might share a lecture with and how they progressed in this subject, here. It's also worth comparing typical A-level subjects and grades students achieved with the current course entry requirements; similarities or differences here could indicate how flexible (or not) a university might be.

The Longitudinal Educational Outcomes dataset combines HRMC earnings data with student records from the Higher Education Statistics Agency.

While there are lots of factors at play when it comes to your future earnings, use this as a rough timeline of what graduates in this subject area were earning on average one, three and five years later. Can you see a steady increase in salary, or did grads need some experience under their belt before seeing a nice bump up in their pay packet?
