University of Aberdeen
Irish and Scottish History
Candidates will normally have an Honours degree at 2.1 or above in an appropriate discipline, or equivalent qualifications and experience. Applicants who have been educated in the medium of English are still required to meet the English language requirements (certain countries may be exempted from this requirement). This programme requires that applicants meet the 'postgraduate standard' level of English proficiency. Applicants who are in doubt about their proficiency in English should contact the British Council office or its equivalent in their country. For applicants whose 1st language is not English, it is important that their proficiency in English is good in order for them to study successfully at the University.
In addition to writing a dissertation and completing a preparatory course for the dissertation, all students take the course 'nations and unions: writing Irish and Scottish history' and 2 additional courses, which might include 'Scottish and Irish enlightenments', 'Ireland and Scotland in the long 19th century', or 'Ireland and Scotland in the 20th century'. Dissertation supervision is available in any aspect of Scottish history from the middle ages to the present, or Irish history from 1600.
Courses will be assessed by course work, by examination or by a combination of these, as prescribed for each course. The degree of MLitt shall not be awarded to candidates who fail to achieve a grade of D9 or above in the dissertation, irrespective of their performance in other courses.
