From advice to careerEmployers like Flexible Combined Honours Degrees!

  • You stand out from the crowd
  • You show motivation in creating your own degree
  • You have breadth of knowledge
  • You are different!

Increasingly, the job market requires employees with the ability to assess complex problems from different perspectives, a skill that comes with multidisciplinary learning.

The wide range of FCH subject pathways and the breadth of the curriculum in each of them, make FCH graduates versatile and sought after. Consequently the FCH degree can give you added qualities compared to usual single honours or combined honours programmes.

The degree appeals particularly to highly motivated students, as the degree encourages you to adapt your studies to your changing interests and to add to your employability. This develops a sense of responsibility in you for your own learning and decision-making.

You learn time management skills, caused by resolving potential timetabling issues, varying workloads and meeting conflicting deadlines.

Academically the degree easily allows you to add breadth to your knowledge and understanding, whilst staff guidance ensures appropriate depth and academic progression to your studies - in short, an interesting graduate!

By following at least two subjects, you embrace different study, research and analytical methodologies, varied assessment methods, and the need to develop different verbal and written presentation skills appropriate for the subjects.

The result – an interesting graduate with a very good range of transferable skills for the workplace:

  • time management
  • adaptability
  • self-directed working
  • reflection
  • appreciation of diversity
  • application of different approaches to suit the situation or problem
  • presentation skills
  • numerical and literary-based abilities, according to the subjects taken
