Use the menu to the right to see what you will study in each subject you want to combine.

Third subjects

For subject combinations that include a choice of optional modules (as opposed to compulsory modules), it may be possible to take fewer optional modules so that you can take a third subject, such as a foreign language or IT, for 15 or 30 credits within the overall 120.

This allows you to learn a foreign language if you are considering spending time studying abroad.

It also allows you to add a vocational element to your degree to help your employability.
