Where to do joint honours or major/minor?

Just wondering which unis offer the most options for joint/combined degrees.

I want to do either history and politics joint honours, or history with Spanish (75/25 split).

Also, which unis tend to have the most freedom in terms of content (optional modules etc)?

Thanks!
This is something you need to research - every course is different, both in structure and emphasis, even they have the same title. You need to look carefully at what is on offer within the degree, and what else that Uni offers - study abroad, work placements, and if there are extra-curricular language classes instead of a named 'with Spanish' degree. Go to Uni Open Days and listen to the course presentations - and work out what really interests you and appeals to you. This is part of your personal journey of 'going to University' - other people cannot do it for you.

Also, look at courses called 'Liberal Arts', 'Combined Honours' etc - these will allow you to combine a variety of subjects and usually include study abroad. And, look at 'European Studies' and 'Hispanic Studies' - these will include focussed History/Politics etc of that area, with at least one language.

Start by looking at
Lancaster - Courses A-Z - Lancaster University
Bristol - Spanish | Study at Bristol | University of Bristol - Bristol also offers Liberal Arts
York - Course Search (york.ac.uk)

Go to the course search page on the UCAS website and start typing 'history' in the 'What are you looking for?' box. A lot of options will appear for joint degrees:
