High five! Where are you applying for then?
(Original post by Blue Meltwater)
Yes, I did, thankfully! I applied mainly for English Literature courses but added a combined option with History at Edinburgh on a whim, which turned out quite lucky as I much prefer it over the English side.
I'm not actually sure what Liberal Arts is. Is it like an overview of the humanities?
Ooh nice! I've been to Edinburgh and I realllllly love the city but unfortunately the requirements they have for the course I studied at college are stupidly high (above what Cambridge are asking for!)
Does seem like a great place to study and I really admire the Scottish system too.
Well, every university that offers it seems to helpfully have a slightly different interpretation
But generally that's about right, you do a set of "core" modules that include critical thinking etc, most often a foreign language is included too (Exeter have the option for Latin which I'd love!) and then a mix of modules first year before gradually specialising into a major or a major and a minor
