Comments about BA History - At the institution - Reading - Berkshire

  • Objectives
    Our history syllabus offers you a broad chronological range of study, while providing opportunities for specialisation in particular periods or topics within British, European and American history.
  • Entry requirements
    There are different entry qualifications for each programme. Some programmes require you to have a certain amount of knowledge in a subject before you begin the degree programme – this is called a ‘subject requirement’. Other programmes do not have any specific subject requirements. All programmes will, however, expect you to have reached a certain standard in your education and will ask you to achieve certain grades in your examinations. Most programmes have a standard offer so that you know in advance what you are likely to need. Please note that even if you have the minimum entry qualifications, you are not necessarily guaranteed a place on the degree programme.
