We also offer flexibility to study modules outside of your main degree subject.

How is studying at university different from school?

Julia says, "Growing up, I was always under the impression that if I had fewer subjects to study, I would find school easier. Therefore, it was a huge shock when I made the jump from GCSEs to A Levels...From A Levels to university, the step up is similar in a lot of ways."
