Triple Combined Honours at Sheffield University


The University of Sheffield offers a cross-departmental degree programme where students can study three subjects. Our Combined Honours-Triple programme attracts high achieving and focussed students and allows them to combine a range of subjects of their choice. Students who are taking the IB are ideally suited to this programme as it allows them to continue studying more than one subject while maintaining a valuable interdisciplinary perspective and a diverse career trajectory. Already confident students will enjoy the opportunity to further develop their academic interests and create their own intellectual paths with guidance and support from our experienced team.

One of the key features of our programme is that it allows students flexibility in their options over the three years of their course. After the first year, if a student decides not to continue to study three subjects, they may ‘drop’ one of their subjects and pursue a Dual Honours programme, still retaining flexibility between their remaining subjects. So far, half our students have decided to remain with three subjects and half have chosen to concentrate on the two subjects that they enjoy most. Many of our students have decided to combine two European languages, such as French and Russian, with a third subject in History or English. All our European languages are available ab initio.

In addition to the appeal of this flexibility, students will be working with some of the best academic staff in the world. The Faculty of Arts and Humanities is ranked in the top 120 in the world (QS World Rankings 2017) and consistently achieves excellent ratings in the National Student Survey. The University of Sheffield also has the highest rating for student satisfaction in the Russell Group and is ranked within the top 85 in the world (QS World Rankings 2018).

QS are one of the most famous global university ranking systems – when you attend the St Clare’s HE Fair, you will notice that we, and many of the universities invited, use the QS rankings.

We will also run subject-specific admissions seminars the day, covering business, humanities, sciences and medicine, as well as on topics such as applying to a top UK or US institution, 10 things to consider when choosing an undergrad school, presentations by leading universities and funding/scholarships advice.

The fair is free to attend but students must register their details at: www.topuniversities.com/schools

Parents and guardians are more than welcome to visit with their children, there is no need for them to register their details.

Open University MOOCs – Business, Finance, Exploring Wealth Inequality

The Open University

Details of some interesting courses run by the Open University via Futurelearn. All are free to enroll.

The Open University (OU) is the largest academic institution in the UK and a world leader in flexible distance learning, with a mission is to be open to people, places, methods and ideas.

Finance Fundamentals: Investment Theory and Practice – starts 18 September

Research shows that UK households are poor at investment management with a limited understanding of investment choices, risks and returns. The resultant ‘savings gap’ threatens a scenario where many cannot afford to retire. Elsewhere households fail to plan properly to make their investment choices fit with their risk appetites and the time horizons for access to their funds. Finance Fundamentals: Investment Theory and Practice aims to give you the tools to avoid these personal finance nightmares.

You’ll study the various investment choices and the returns and risks associated with different products. You’ll also study investment strategies and how to ensure your approach to investment is consistent with your risk-return appetite. You’ll also look at how to avoid the individual and group behavioural traits that can impair effective investment decision making.

Business Fundamentals: Customer Engagement – starts 18 September

When did you last do business with someone you didn’t trust? Or who broke a promise? Building a relationship with your customer involves time, communication and commitment, but the benefits are a sure way to help your business succeed and grow.

This free online course introduces the principles of relationship marketing, revealing long-term relationships as the way to unlock value for marketers, customers and other stakeholders. Even if you have never considered marketing to be relevant to you personally, the ideas shared in this course will reveal how you can benefit from it – at work or elsewhere.

You will explore how organisations choose the right customers to engage with, how they sustain such engagement, and how and why they disengage. As well as analysing how organisations implement relationship marketing, the course will encourage you to apply its ideas to your own role even if you have little or no direct contact with customers. You’ll also be able to use these principles with potential employers.

Challenging Wealth and Income Inequality – starts 25 September

From religious leaders to heads of state, everyone is talking about economic inequality. What form can such inequality take in different countries? What impact does it have on society? And why should it matter to you?

This free online course will explore the growing concerns surrounding rising inequality in income and wealth in developed countries. You’ll scrutinise claims that the baby boomer generation has had it all, in terms of pension deals and affordable houses, while social and political changes have left younger generations struggling to find security for their accommodation and retirement income.

You’ll examine the causes and implications of growing economic inequalities and what can be done about them, by individuals, communities and governments.
