Many courses can be taken as combined honours, merging modules from two separate subjects to personalise your higher education experience to your interests and future career ambitions.
Course requirements are generally set at AAB or ABB grade at A-level (or equivalent), though these can vary depending on the individual course.
If you don’t meet the entry requirements for your course, or have not studied the relevant subjects to undertake the course, we offer a number of foundation years to get you started.
Applicants from disadvantaged backgrounds can sign up to the Access to Southampton (A2S) scheme, which offers special consideration and financial support to eligible prospective students.
