Mr Nasar Safdar Shah, BSc Psychology and Sociology, Birmingham (UK)

“Aston University is a great place to study with a friendly atmosphere and lots of help! Being a small university ensures that you see the same smiling faces many times. Selecting a Combined Honours degree provides you with more than one career option so it is better to keep your options open. Combining together two subjects means you will gain extensive knowledge and your chances of being selected for a job will be higher than a student who has just studied one subject. Finally, you will love being part of the Combined Honours department!!”




Miss Anne Dawson, BSc Psychology and French Cobham (UK): “I chose to study Psychology and French at University because they were two of my favourite subjects at A-level, and they haven't disappointed me. Right back in my first year I enjoyed the privilege of flexibility in choosing which areas of French I wanted to study, and it's great to be able to alternate between the two subjects too. I have been given the excellent opportunity of working in France for the year, such a placement adding to my already broad knowledge and experience. I'm studying subjects that I love and it would seem may even be quite useful in terms of a career too!” 


Mr Yahya Chaudury, BSc Business with Maths. Nottingham (UK): “I highly advocate taking a combined honours degree, it enables the study of two subjects in parallel and the two disciplines form an academically coherent degree. It will give you flexibility, variety of knowledge and skills offered only by studying a combination of subjects. Many employers also look for candidates who have a range of subject knowledge and skills, studying for a Combined Honours degree will thus give you a real advantage in the workplace and you're likely to well regarded by prospective employers. More than likely, you will change jobs during your working life, so having two areas of expertise and skills can also pay dividends.”
