“I enjoy the variety of perspectives I can study because of FCH. You learn in an amazing international environment, where everyone is different but similar at the same time! On my third year I went to Italy and worked in PR and Communications and gained knowledge through my new cultural experience; at work, at home and in daily tasks.”

What is Flexible Combined Honours?

What is FCH?

Flexible Combined Honours (FCH) offers a unique and appealing degree structure. You can study a range of two or three subjects, related or diverse, allowing you to develop a blend of knowledge and skills to suit your own subject interests and career objectives.

At its simplest level, FCH allows you to combine two subjects where there is currently no existing Combined Honours degree at the University. For example, at Streatham & St Luke’s you can study ‘Geography and Economics’ or ‘Management and Classical Studies’, or at Penryn you can study ‘Business and History’.

FCH also offers the opportunity to study three subject areas, if compulsory modules allow - please ask about this before applying.

Alternatively, you can take modules from a variety of departments by studying one of our thematic pathways. For example, our ‘Sustainability’ pathway at Streatham & St Luke’s enables you to choose relevant modules from Geography, Politics, English, Management, Biosciences, Middle Eastern Studies, Anthropology or History.

If you are a prospective student and would like to find out more about the subjects available for study, module choices and entry requirements please visit the FCH undergraduate pages.
