Within these, you can work with world-leading academics to study history from the medieval period to the modern day, with options encompassing the history of Britain and Europe to America and the wider world.
Our entry requirements range from a 2.1 to a first depending on your chosen programme. Your degree should normally be in history or a related subject from a recognised UK or overseas university.
