Discover our Flexible Honours

Make your degree as unique as you.

If you’re interested in humanities but want to sample a range of subject areas, then Flexible Honours could be for you. Tailor your degree to reflect your interests and passions by combining your core modules with other subjects taught at the University. This means that when you graduate you will have a highly personalised degree that will suit you and your aspirations.

The University offers several Flexible Honours degrees, from History to Economics, which enable you to pick and mix your favourite subjects while still keeping you on track to complete a full honours degree in two years.

With Flexible Honours, you have the freedom to select up to a third of your modules from the whole range that is taught at the University. We encourage you to follow your passion and mix and match lots of different subjects. At every stage, your Personal Tutor will be on hand to advise and guide your choices.
