is it better to do a subject 'alone' or as a Joint award? I can sort of see benefits for both but I'm not sure :confused:

Do what feels best for you; you can ask for so much advise on this but in the end it is your choice. Research into courses and if you like the sound of them then go for it...

If you do a degree course "alone", you would learn everything in the course. If you choose a join degree, you only learn half of the two subjects. It can be good and bad in a way.

Joint honours degrees are good for breadth - if you're not sure what you want to "specialise" in, you can learn the best parts of two subjects. If you do single honours, you'll learn about the subject in lots of depth. It depends what you're after.

I think doing a single subject would be better as you get to know all the stuff for the subject instead of part of the subject.

If you do a joint degree, it would be useful when you have a job that is related to those two subjects (e.g. business and IT?)

I decided to do Joint Hons (English and Publishing) at Ox Brookes for serveral reasons, mainly because I've been working for the last few years since I finished my A levels and I didn't want to throw myself into something purely academic. I figured publishing would be a more vocational subject and seeing as I would like to work in the industry once I finish my degree, it would be relevant to my career aswell. I was also a bit worried I would find it tough going to do one subject in depth - although I love English I haven't done it for a few years! - so doing two subjects meant there was more chance of keeping me interested!
