How does it work?

每个学科都由模块组成, some lasting a whole academic year 和 other modules lasting half a year to enable you to achieve the right balance of core knowledge 和 skills. It will also offer you the opportunity to follow your interests. In 第一年, you study your two subjects in equal weighting. 在第二年,你可以选择:

  • Continue studying  your subjects in equal weighting - a Joint Honours degree
  • Specialise more in one subject 和 take the other as a minor - a Major/Minor Honours Degree
  • Focus entirely on one subject - Single Honours degree, provided the subject is offered as a Single Honours Degree.

Your academic tutor will help you plan your studies, review your progress 和 choose your modules.

第一年:
