University of Cambridge
Political Thought and Intellectual History
Applicants should have a 1st Class degree or a high Upper 2nd Class degree from a UK university with a minimum average in the final year of 67 percent; or the equivalent from a university outside the UK. Candidates will normally be expected to have taken a substantial number of history courses at university level and to have a sound background in the period covered by the course. IELTS score of 7.5.
The course comprises 2 kinds of work: group study and individually tailored supervised research training; both persist simultaneously throughout the year, so that students are expected to attend the course classes, research seminar, and lectures while at the same time researching their essays. Postgraduate students in Cambridge are expected to work continuously throughout the year with the exception of a few days' break at a time, so that the 'vacation periods' are in fact periods in which required work must be completed.
Assessment is based on a 15000-20000 word dissertation and essays.
