BA (Hons) History with Foundation
Six centuries, six continents: war, sex, faith, beauty, the human experience. It’s all there to discover. But, for some reason, you’ve not submitted your application. You wonder if you’re the type of person who goes to university. Perhaps you don’t have 32-48 UCAS points or other qualifications. Our four-year BA may be perfect for you.
In your first year, you’ll be equipped with an enabling inter-disciplinary knowledge of the humanities. You’ll acquire a toolkit of skills in a supportive environment, and the confidence to know how to use it. Upon successful completion of your first year, you’ll join the rest of the undergraduate BA (Hons) History community for three lively years of discipline-specific study and inter-disciplinary enquiry that gives you the chance to explore the past and discover your future.
