Obviously these are looking at each subject on it's own but hopefully it should give you some idea. =)
Ask around in university subforums too.

Edit: Actually those two links might be the same, i'm sure there is something online though which you can find ranking of subjects and stuff in the university can't remember where.:o:

Don't pick based solely on league tables- pick based on what you want from the course.

according to academic results..
Define "academic results".:dontknow: If you mean the percentage of people who graduated with firsts, 2.1s etc last year, you could try unistats. Joint degrees probably won't be listed, though, because they tend to be relatively small courses.

hey i'm going to start an English Lit and History degree at Birmingham in a couple of weeks and i just thought i'd comment cause i spent AGES researching this and basically lots of good uni's don't seem to do joint eng lit and history which surprised me cause i orginally thought all of them would!

so on those grounds it would be hard to make a top 20 but good uni's that do eng/history are:

Oxford (if you're going to get A*'s and A's)

then redbrick/well reputed uni's are..
Cardiff,
Nottingham,
Leeds,
Sussex,
York,
Southampton,
Birmingham,
Sheffield,
Liverpool,
St Andrews,
Edinburgh,
Lancaster

but seriously it's probably better to just find a course you like the best cause you will need AAA/AAB maybe ABB if you're lucky, and definitely an A in english to study joint eng/history at a "top" uni so they will all be of a good standard!

i really wanted to apply to manchester and exeter but manchester don't do it and exeter only do it on their cornwall campus which i didn't like, it was so quiet.

I would guess the normal universities that are the best for English & History and offer it as a joint course? I am applying for English & History but only have a B in English Literature so I am not applying for the very top universities but the good ones that are not as strict in their entry requirements :yes:

I'd say that some of the best I looked at were Sheffield, Edinburgh, Sussex, Leciester, Nottingham and Birmingham. Although I was looking at the breadth and flexibility of the course etc.
I really would recommend looking at both Birm and Sheffield as they have a wide variety of modules etc.

Some omissions there, Durham being the most obvious (where AAA is obviously the typical offer and GCSEs are important - they certainly are for single honours history and english although they do take the standard of the school into account).

Glasgow is also another university worth looking at, typical offer is AAB, I think. That's the typical offer for arts degrees anyway (recently moved up from ABB).

But there are other redbricks/solid universities who don't offer English and history but will still allow the student to create a joint honours degree as part of another programme like Combined Honours or Combined Studies. Newcastle is an example of this (typical offer AAA).

yeah i probably didn't make myself clear enough, the list i wrote consisted of just some of the places that offer eng&hist they are not the only ones that will do the course, but they were the main ones i found and could remember! i didn't look at every single uni obviously.

and personally i would just look at the universitys that offer English and History as a joint honours degree as the modules of the two subjects are more likely to fit well together and you will have more of a support network.
