Combined Honours

Our combined honours programmes give you the opportunity to gain a wider range of expertise by the end of your course.

Combined Honours degrees are degrees that are taken in two different subjects, resulting in an X and Y degree title, for example BSc (Hons) Astrophysics and Computer Science.

If you are taking a Combined Honours degree, these will be the two subjects you applied for and they are referred to as your principal subjects. You will take at least three modules (45 credits) each year in each of your principal subjects, although some principal subjects will require you to take more than this.

As a Combined Honours student you can choose to study just one subject in your final year of study, taking a minimum of 90 credits in this subject. This will result in an X with Y degree title, for example BSc (Hons) Astrophysics with Computer Science. 

All Combined Honours options are available to view on our undergraduate course list.
