What will I learn?

The English and History integrated joint gives students an opportunity to develop a deeper understanding of their heritage and cultural identity, along with the chance to explore other cultures and traditions. Using a wide range of literary and non-literary materials, the programme examines the dynamic relationship which links all forms of cultural activity to the passions and prejudices, hopes and fears of real people facing the specific challenges of their times. Students on this course will develop a greater appreciation of social and political forces which shape our world and its communities. They will acquire the ability to identify and employ a range of oral, written and digital resources, enhancing their skills in information gathering and self-expression which are valued so highly by future employers.The foundation year of this course is designed to offer applicants who do not have the required qualifications, a programme which will equip them with a robust toolkit of academic, digital and personal skills required for successful study in higher education. It also provides an understanding of, and insight into, a range of disciplines that underpin their chosen programme of study. In the foundation year students will develop their ability to gain the most out of structured in-class study, and also to manage and evaluate their own independent learning. This wide range of transferable skills is of immense value in both undergraduate study and graduate employment. Upon successful completion of the foundation year, students will have the opportunity to develop their knowledge and understanding of their subject area to degree level.
