Ginny

From politics to theology to music to film studies, you can try pretty much anything in your first year which is great for students who aren’t sure what they want to choose yet! It’s a real challenge to choose one subject to study for the next 3 years after doing so many at school, and Liberal Arts gives you the opportunity to carry on subjects, or even try new ones for a semester to see how you go.
