Max Farra Profile

"I’m studying towards a Bachelor of Arts, majoring in French and Political Science. I’m also taking some Law. The College of Arts has been really accommodating. They’ve allowed me to dip my toe in the water and mix Law with my BA. There’s been a lot of flexibility in terms of being able to take what interests me. The diversity of choice in the BA programme is brilliant. The flexibility keeps things interesting – I’m not forced to choose between my passions to fit into a box. I’ve been able to study what I want and gain practical knowledge in a range of areas."
