Undergraduate study


We offer a wide range of undergraduate programmes giving a great deal of flexibility and choice.

Flexible degree programmes

You can either specialise by taking one of our Single Honours programmes or combine subjects in a more broad-based degree. We have a great deal of experience in running Combined Honours programmes and make sure that students on these programmes are taught and supported with the same care and success as those focusing on one subject.

All our degree programmes offer flexibility. You will be able to choose from a long list of modules within your chosen subject and may be able to supplement these with options from both within and outside the College. You may also benefit from opportunities for work experience and study abroad.

Research-led teaching

All our programmes are based on research-led teaching and are structured to offer growing disciplinary expertise while developing generic skills valued by employers such as communication, analysis, information handling and interpretation of evidence.

Our teaching is characterised by strong tutorial support and carefully planned programmes to develop skills and understanding to allow you to take increasing responsibility for your learning in more specialised seminar-based modules, linked to staff research expertise.

We use diverse methods of assessment to support emphasis on presentation, teamwork, projects and dissertations, as well as essay writing and exams.

You will be able to grow and refine these skills through opportunities such as work experience and study abroad.
