How to Apply
Students are normally required to apply through UCAS. Further information on the application process and deadlines are available on the main college site. The School of History’s standard entry requirement is 320 UCAS points (equivalent to ABB at A-Level – though we do not accept A-Levels in Critical Thinking and General Studies), however we are interested in hearing from all who would like to take one of our innovative degree programmes. We are proud of the effort we make to review each application individually, taking careful note of the personal statement and reference, as well as achieved and predicted grades. Our admissions team are always on the lookout for both excellence and potential – and it is for that reason that we invite many of our prospective candidates for interview.
From these pages you can access further information regarding your UCAS application to the School of History. If you choose to apply to the School, we will first consider your UCAS application and may then invite you to an Open Day or an interview. When making your choice of universities, it’s really important to have visited them. You need to make sure that this is a place where you can be content throughout the three years of your degree: we strongly encourage you to come to see us if at all possible. We welcome applications from mature students and from outside the British educational system. We recognize that these applicants, in particular, may need advice and support when completing their UCAS forms. If you have questions, would like advice about how we regard specific qualifications, or want to talk about how best to present yourself on your application, please do get in touch.
