Requirements

An upper-second-class Honours degree or higher, or international equivalent, in history or a related subject (such as politics, economics, English or sociology). We will also consider applicants on an individual basis with lower qualification or non-standard qualifications.

Applicants whose first language is not English require IELTS 6.5 (with a minimum of 6.5 in writing), Pearson's PTE Academic Test 62 or equivalent.

English Language Requirements

IELTS band: 6.5

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.

The IELTS test is most widely accepted by universities and is also accepted for Tier 4 visas to the UK- learn more.
