The course is very flexible and allows you to study the periods and subjects in history that most interest you. You can also combine this with other subjects from the School of History, Classics and Archaeology eg ancient history or archaeology as well as related topics such as politics, English or a foreign language.
This course is taught and based on the Newcastle University campus.
The course is delivered through a combination of seminars, lectures, individual tutorials and small-group teaching. Module teaching runs Monday to Friday, during the day and term time only. Your tutors and other academic staff are normally available for consultation, and for dissertation supervision, during vacations.

An upper-second-class Honours degree, or international equivalent, in history or a related subject. Applicants with non-standard qualifications and/or an appropriate level of experience are encouraged to apply and will be considered on an individual basis.
Applicants whose first language is not English require IELTS 6.5 (with a minimum of 6.5 in writing), or equivalent.
IMPORTANT NOTE: Per 6 April 2015 only the English language tests from IELTS and Trinity College London are accepted for Tier 4 Visa applications to the United Kingdom. Other tests (including TOEFL, TOEIC, Pearson, City & Guilds) are no longer accepted for Tier 4 visa applications to the United Kingdom. The university might still accept these tests to admit you to the university, but if you require a Tier 4 visa to enter the UK and begin your degree programme, these tests will not be sufficient to obtain your Visa. Since the Trinity College London language tests must be taken in one of their exam centres in the UK, IELTS is now the only language test accepted for Tier 4 visas to the UK that can be taken worldwide.
