University of Exeter has opted into the TEF and received a Gold award.
Flexible Combined Honours (FCH) gives you the opportunity to study otherwise unavailable or unusual subject combinations and to customise your degree programme, making it distinctive and different. This is usually done by choosing two subject areas for your first year. It is sometimes possible to take a third subject as a minor one, such as a foreign language – please ask about this before applying. You can also follow one of the readily available themed pathways such as Mediterranean Studies or Historical, Political and Sociological Studies for the whole or part of your study from your first year.
You can combine subjects in various proportions and the proportion can change each year, provided any core, compulsory modules are taken. You can also drop a first year subject and start a new one or follow a new themed pathway from the second year.
The following subject areas are available through FCH – you can combine any two unless otherwise stated:
•Art History & Visual Culture
•Biological Sciences: Molecular and Cellular Biology
•British Sign Language (minor)
•Exercise and Sports Science @
•International Relations ✝
•Medical Sciences $
•Mediterranean Studies ◊
