How Joint Honours works

The programmes listed above can be combined to form a joint degree, this allows you to study two subjects with varying degrees of specialisation. You can either study subjects equally, e.g. Media Arts and English, or study one as a major subject in more depth than the other, your minor subject.

For Joint Honours subjects, students can decided whether they want to Major and Minor at the end of their second year. This allows plenty of time and flexibility to choose.

Joint Honours infographic

Although most programmes can be studied as a Single Honours degree, some require you study two subjects in the first year. Students choose their second subject once they have been offered a place. After their first year, students can concentrate solely on their main programme, although they may continue with both should they wish to graduate with Joint Honours.

Sometimes students find that they want to change subject during their programme. For example, some continue with their second subject when they originally applied for a Single Honours degree, and some change the balance of programmes in their joint degree. You will get advice about your choices throughout the programme and we try to accommodate changes whenever possible.
