What We're Looking For
Above all we're looking for someone who
- Wants the breadth that the Combined degree offers
- Has a real interest in several subjects, and/or a field that combines them, such as international affairs, childhood, crime, globalisation...
- Looks like the independent-minded sort of person who will relish the chance to build their own programme of modules
- Has strong academic potential, not necessarily shown in conventional ways
- Maybe someone who relishes the chance to 'think outside the box' of any one conventional academic subject.
We welcome students with A-levels, and combinations of A and AS-levels. We welcome qualifications such as Scottish Highers/Advanced Highers and IB which are already broad-based. Many overseas students find the Combined degree a natural successor to the International Baccalaureate and similar programmes. We welcome students with Access qualifications.
Many part-time students find the Combined degree an ideal framework for their studies.
Do feel free to contact the Combined Office to arrange a visit. This will help you decide whether the Combined degree is the right thing for you, and we can often arrange for you to meet our current students and hear from them the 'inside story'!
