    How exactly does the course work? How many different subjects can you take overall?

    I've recently received my Durham prospectus, and up until now I've always wanted to study Chemistry at Uni, however I really don't want to give up Biology or Classics after A-Level. In the Prospectus it says something about allowing you to take one non-Science, such as Classics?!


    If I've interpreted this correctly, this would be my dream degree!!


    Am I right, or have I read it wrong?

    Hey, I do Bio and Chem NatSci so may be able to help!

    In your first year you'll want to do Core Chemistry 1A ( a double module which everyone takes, even the pure chemists), 2 or 3 Biology modules I guess, then the rest (ie, 1 or 2...6 modules in total) classics...which modules you can take depends on clashes etc etc. After first year, if you want to carry on with classics it shouldn't be an issue unless you decide to do joint honours in Bio and Chem in which case you'll have to do certain bio and chem modules.

    So basically, yes you can do some classics as long as
    a) you have the prerequisites
    b) there aren't any clashes
    c) you don't do the JH (but that only affects 2nd year+)
    d) you do at least 50% science modules, so over 3 years you can't do more than 9 classics modules, but given you want to do 3 subjects I can't see that being an issue!

    Good luck with your application
