What qualifications do you need?
For access to the BA History degree, you will usually meet the following criteria:
Even if you do not meet the standard requirements, we will consider each application on its own merits. Our Admissions Panel will consider whether any alternative/incomplete qualifications or work experience you have are suitable for entry to the programme. If we are unable to issue you an offer then if available we will advise on further alternatives such as our International Foundation Programme or on additional qualifications you need to take in order to meet our minimum entrance criteria.
I don’t meet the entry requirements. What can I do?
English Language requirements
You need to demonstrate a good level of English to be admitted to our programmes. We accept a range of evidence, including proficiency test scores. If you don’t have evidence but believe you can meet the standard, we may consider your case.
Do I meet the language requirements?
We set minimum basic computer requirements because your study resources are accessed via the Student Portal and it is vital that you can access this regularly. For this degree, you will also need Adobe Flash Player to view video material and a media player (such as VLC) to play video files.

Can I transfer credits from other awards?
If you have studied material as part of a previous qualification that is comparable in content and standard, you might be exempted from the equivalent course of our degree. This is known as Accreditation of Prior Learning (APL), Credit Transfer or Exemption. You may apply for recognition for up to four full courses at Level 1.
Please note if you wish to be considered for discretionary recognition of prior learning for the 2020 intake, then you must formally apply and submit your request by: 01 October 2020.
