    Liberal Arts courses are a new form of course now offered by several UK Unis such as Exeter, Bristol, Birmingham etc.
    They allow you to pick and mix courses across the Arts, Humanities and Soc Science and focus on exploring the connections between those subjects and therefore give a much more rounded education than a single or even a joint subject degree. They are ideal for anyone interested in either lots of different subjects or in being more open minded about ideas from other disciplines. One of the BIG advantages is that they are 4 year degrees, fully funded by SF and include a Year Abroad (USA, Australia etc as well as Europe) - and you graduate with an 'M' degree.

    VERY much worth looking at. These cross-subject degrees are likely to become the norm in many Unis in the next decade, and will appeal to employers who want employees with breadth of study and experience overseas. Highly recommended.

    PS. Other degrees (usually 3 year) to look at are any that are any 'Area' Study - American Studies, Hispanic Studies, Asian Studies etc - as these will also offer cross-subjects units - history, culture, social science etc for that geographic area and will also have a Year Abroad.
