This degree offers students an opportunity to cover the full breadth of intellectual and cultural developments in Germany from the Age of Enlightenment right up to the twenty-first century. Although the bulk of your time is spent in the German Department, there is a lot of flexibility. Since you can spend up to a quarter of your time taking modules from other departments you could acquire significant new skills in a new language such as Spanish, Italian, Japanese or Russian (or you might prefer to pick from a range of subjects that you may not have had a chance to study at Advanced or Higher level).
General university admissions requirements All applicants must possess a minimum level of competence in English Language and in Mathematics or a Science. A pass at Grade C or above in GCSE English Language and in Mathematics or a Science, or an equivalent qualification, fulfils this requirement. For some courses, requirements are above this University minimum, so you should check the relevant course-specific entry requirements in our hard copy prospectus which you can order online or browse on our online directory. We usually ask for candidates to show a broad base of study at GCSE level (or equivalent) with passes in at least five subjects from a range of disciplines.
