This course provides an introduction to history and is a stepping stone for students whose undergraduate degree is in a different discipline but who wish to study history to a higher level.

Entry requirements

Applicants require a good Honours degree at minimum 2.1 standard or equivalent. All applicants who are not a British national and/or whose 1st language is not English will need to demonstrate a suitable level of English language proficiency. This is equivalent to an IELTS 6.5 overall, with a minimum of 6.0 in all components, although we do accept many other types of qualifications or tests. In accordance with the UK Border Agencies Tier 4 visa guidelines, we will also waive the English language requirement for applicants who meet the defined nationality test or who have completed a degree level course in 1 of the listed countries. For a full list of these, as well as the qualifications / tests that we will consider, please visit our website.

Course modules

Modules are selected from an extensive list of 2nd and 3rd year undergraduate modules offered by the School of History; students wishing to progress to Masters level study should complete the dissertation module.

Assessment methods

Assessment takes place throughout your period of study. The majority of modules are assessed by a combination of coursework and examination.
