- Our typical offer is:
- We also require three passes at GCSE grade C or above, which must include Mathematics and English Language, or an equivalent qualification, for example; a minimum of Level 2 Key Skills in Communication and Application of Number. If you have studied for a new GCSE for which you will be awarded a numerical grade then you will need to achieve a grade 4 or above.
If English is not your first language we will require an International English Language Testing System (IELTS) with an overall score of 6.0 and at least 5.5 or higher in each component: reading, writing, listening and speaking. An alternative approved Secure English Language Test (SELT) can also be considered if the applicant's element scores are equivalent to those required for IELTS.
History is a very well-respected degree. You will graduate with the ability to research and analyse complex material, think critically about ideas and arguments, and communicate clearly.
These skills transfer to a wide range of sectors, including education, finance, law, politics and the Civil Service. Many graduates teach History in colleges and schools. Other graduates go on to work in museums and archives.
