Hi - I've got an offer for Eng lit and French with Combined Honours at Durham, but am stuck between this and Warwick! The problem for me with Durham is that the English course looks very traditional and as I'll be studying in the CH course (possibly doing a module in philosophy as well as French and English), I guess my module choice will be restricted.. have any CH students found this a problem?

Also, I'm pretty sure I will want to 'specialise' more in English in the 2nd and final year (I mean, take more modules in Eng than in French so I can write my final dissertation for the English department); is there help/guidance to ensure you take the right modules in your 1st year to enable you to do this with English later on? How flexible is the English department?

Any advice/general experiences about Combined honours at durham would be greatly appreciated, thanks

Not entirely true; some depts limit what CH students can take in terms of numbers or types of modules. Check this: https://www.dur.ac.uk/resources/facu...works/qrv0.pdf
