You must hold a UK honours degree (or equivalent), preferably with at least a 2:1 classification to study our MA in History. Although your degree does not need to be in History or a closely related subject, you will need some knowledge of the subject to successfully complete this qualification, as the MA in History assumes all candidates have the knowledge and skills usually acquired by pursuing the subject at undergraduate level.
If your degree or background is not in history or a related subject, we strongly recommend that you complete the preparatory work listed in the Entry requirements for MA History part 1 (A883).
It is expected that your spoken and written English will also be of an adequate standard for postgraduate study. If English is not your first language, we recommend that you will need a minimum score of 7 under the International English Language testing system (IELTS). Please see their website for more details.
If you’re in any doubt about the suitability of your qualifications or previous experience, please contact us before you enrol.
How long it takes
You will be able to complete this masters qualification within two years by studying one module a year.
