Our students

Our students are unique in their interests and ambitions. Some of our students are interested particularly in the Arts, whilst others are more interested in the Social and Natural Sciences. Equally, some of our students enjoy exploring modules that cut across the Arts and Sciences.

We welcome students with Arts backgrounds, Science backgrounds, and those who have studied a range of A levels (or equivalent). If you are interested in building your degree around your passions (with our support), this could be the right course for you.

Applying to study

We will carefully consider your UCAS personal statement during the application process. We are keen to hear about your interest in interdisciplinary learning and your academic or personal experiences and ambitions.

Second personal statement

We are no longer asking for a second personal statement.
