Chemistry with Business Management BSc

“The university is great academically and allows me to do a combined Major-Minor course, which wouldn’t have been possible back home. UoB is also great in sports, so it has been great to be involved in one of the top universities in England for badminton. And of course, the campus is beautiful as well!”
