Liberal Arts

Our students

Your route through the Liberal Arts degree is unique to you. With so many subjects to choose from we're yet to have two students choose exactly the same modules.

All our students have different backgrounds, interests and future plans - but also plenty in common. They all want to study more than one subject, are ambitious to learn and look at things from different perspectives.

The Liberal Arts course content was so varied, and assessed via different methods so I was able to try lots of new things.

I didn’t really know what I wanted to do at university. It’s the breadth that drew me to liberal arts to begin with.

I actually went to a different university before Nottingham and really struggled due the class differences within the student community. With my accent and family background, I felt like university wasn't for me. So I decided to transfer to a different university.

Another reason I chose this degree over a single subject degree is that I had the option to change direction in any year if I wanted to.
