University of Birmingham has opted into the TEF and received a Gold award.
Our prestigious Liberal Arts and Sciences programme is designed for talented students who want to study a variety of subjects at degree level. Each student creates their own unique programme which combines arts and/or sciences and/or social sciences. You will typically pick one subject, your Major, which will serve as your specialism. This is then complemented with subjects suiting your interests to give you an original portfolio of expertise at graduation.
First-year modules cover a broad base of the subject and are designed to introduce you to ways of studying at university. By the final year the modules you take will become more specialised and reflect the research expertise of the academic staff. More detailed module information can be found on the ‘Course detail’ tab on the University of Birmingham’s coursefinder web pages.
