Why Choose Combined Honours?

A Picture of Bianca

I was completely unaware of Combined Honours when I applied to Newcastle Uni. On my UCAS application, I put in the course code for Media, Communication and Cultural Studies and thought that was that…

Out of pure chance, after receiving my offer, I stumbled upon Combined Honours while browsing through the uni’s website. From that moment, the programme greatly appealed to me. I could continue studying Media while also studying another subject.

Flexible & Diverse

The beauty of Combined is that you have the freedom to choose from around 20 different subjects, from Archaeology to Spanish. As the complement to Media, I chose Business. Both have great overlap and real-life applicability post-graduation.

Combined also allows you to undertake a range of specific modules. They can include Graduate Development – if you’re on the Student Staff Committee, a peer mentor, a Peer Assisted Study Support Advisor, a society officer – and even a Final Year Project module if you don’t want to do the regular dissertation. Last year I did the Investigating Newcastle module, helping me learn more about the city I would spend my undergraduate years in.

Get involved – become a rep for your peers:


Aside from its flexibility, the Combined Honours Centre is known for being very supportive of its students – whether you want to do a Year Abroad or Placement Year or need help resolving a more personal issue.

The numbers speak for themselves:

It’s not just me who thinks that choosing a Combined Honours degree is worth it. The programme was ranked 1st in the UK and had a 99% satisfaction score in last year’s National Student Survey.

I think I’ve convinced you to pick Combined Honours as your degree programme – you won’t find one like it elsewhere.

Will you be looking out this window next year?
