This programme is designed to provide a route into higher education for those with an interrupted education, or those who wish to return to study after a period of work, caring responsibilities or other activities. It would also suit those who have faced particularly challenging circumstances in their education which have left them without the formal entry requirements for higher education. Success in this ‘Year 0’ entitles you to automatic progression onto BA (Hons) in History (you can also at that stage apply internally for a transfer into our joint honours History degree). We offer something different and exciting – we use innovative, interdisciplinary approaches to the subject, and will encourage you to explore issues, controversies and themes rather than chronological periods. You'll work with staff who are enthusiastic researchers, excellent teachers, and international leaders in their field. Students who have taken this route are now graduating successfully, and some are proceeding onto postgraduate study.
