What will I learn?

Our BA Modern History (including foundation year) is suitable for you if your academic qualifications do not yet meet our entrance requirements for an undergraduate course. This four-year course includes a foundation year (Year Zero), followed by a further three years of undergraduate study. Our compulsory English language and academic skills module supplements your academic subjects.Join us on an intellectual journey through the past. You specialise in the field of modern history and choose from a unique and international range of topics, periods and countries. You study the history of Britain, Europe and the wider world from the 18th century to the present day. This exciting period has marked an age of discovery and globalisation — a time of rapid change, brutal wars, and belief in the possibility of societal and scientific progress.
