Course Introduction

Open to international students only, our BA History and Anthropology (with International Foundation Year) is suitable for you if your academic qualifications do not yet meet our entrance requirements for an undergraduate degree. This four'year course includes a foundation year (Year Zero), followed by a further three years of undergraduate study. International students who are admitted to this programme will normally be eligible for a four'year CAS and student visa. This will last the duration of the degree. Our English language and academic skills modules supplement your academic subjects. This degree is a challenging, critical introduction to two disciplines key to understanding human life, culture and society in the past and present. It enables you to explore contemporary cultural issues from an historical perspective. We offer something different and exciting ' we use innovative, interdisciplinary approaches to history and anthropology, and will encourage you to explore issues, controversies and themes rather than chronological periods. You'll work with staff who are enthusiastic researchers as well as being excellent teachers, many being recognised as international leaders in their field. The departments are large enough to provide a wide range of modules, but small enough to let you get to know other students and staff. The degree will give you access to a wide range of careers by developing your critical, analytical and communication skills; we help you think beyond the traditional boundaries of subjects in ways which employers really value. Through your degree, you'll learn to solve complex problems, think critically and creatively, and communicate with clarity. Our graduates have gone on to work for the UN, World Bank, NGOs, law companies and CSR consultancies.
