Entry requirements

You should normally hold a 2:1 honours degree, or equivalent, in History or in a related subject. If it is some time since you completed your undergraduate education and you do not meet the standard requirement, it may be possible to consider your application based on evidence of other relevant personal and professional experience, the support of your referees and examples of written work.

Applicants may be asked to send a sample of recent academic writing in English together with the application form. If this is not possible, you may substitute a 1,500-word essay reviewing a recent academic book on a historical topic.

Applicants for research degrees should normally hold a master's degree in a subject appropriate to the proposed research topic and the same level of English language proficiency as required for the master's programmes.

Course content

Our MA in History is a highly flexible programme, offered in a close, supportive, tutorial-style environment. It aims to build on your interest in History to help you develop your knowledge and skills as a practising historian.

The course has been shaped by leading researchers in our department. This means that our modules reflect the most recent developments in various historical fields.

We offer core skills training modules. You also have the opportunity to conduct research on topics of your choosing. This takes the form of independent study and dissertation modules. This freedom, combined with advanced training, enables you to graduate confident in your ability to research, write and develop your own work. And puts you in the ideal position to pursue further academic study, or new lines of endeavour.
