The History Preparation for Undergraduate Study (Bridge Course) is a preparatory course for those who wish to progress to undergraduate study in History, but who have, for a wide range of reasons, had a gap in their studies.

The course aims are to develop students' confidence and skills in:

  • Undertaking academic study
  • Using library resources
  • Critical but economic reading
  • Preparing for class discussion and presentations
  • Essay and exam writing.

Tuition is given in the informal atmosphere of a seminar group.

The course involves "hands on experience" using documentary evidence from the 16th and 20th centuries. It will cover aspects of political, social and economic history. The documents and selected texts will be used to develop presentation and writing skills as well as practice in research techniques and interpretation. There will be a small element of information technology for which no previous experience will be needed.

Seminars take place over one evening each week from late January to mid May in the School of History. A minimum attendance of 75% is expected for these meetings. University Library facilities will be available to those registered for the course, supplemented where necessary, with photocopied materials. A short preliminary reading list will be provided to those who enrol.

Entry Requirements Entry Requirement

Students who apply for part-time courses, generally do so with a wide variety of qualifications and experience. For the majority of candidates the most important factors in assessing the application will be past and future achievement in examinations, academic interest in the subject being applied for, personal interest and extra-curricular activities and the confidential reference. We consider applicants as individuals and accept students from a very wide range of educational backgrounds and spend time considering your application in order to reach an informed decision relating your application. We encourage applicants to contact the university if they are unsure about the relevance of their qualifications.

Students for whom English is a Foreign language

We welcome applications from students from all academic backgrounds. We require evidence of proficiency in English (including writing, speaking, listening and reading). Recognised English Language qualifications include:

  • IELTS: 6.5 overall (minimum 6.0 in Reading and Writing with no less than 5.5 in any component)
  • TOEFL: Internet-based score of 88 overall (minimum 20 in Reading and Speaking components, 19 in Writing component and 17 in Listening components.
  • PTE: 62 overall (minimum 55 in Reading and Writing components with no less than 51 in any component).

If you do not meet the University's entry requirements, our INTO Language Learning Centre offers a range of university preparation courses to help you develop the high level of academic and English skills necessary for successful undergraduate study.

Special Entry Requirements

Students who have been away from mainstream education for a significant period of time may be required to submit a short essay to help in assessing suitability for the course.

History is one of the most intellectually and challenging forms of training. Through the study of documents, their interpretation and interpretors, we have a chance to view both past achievements and failures, and establish some patterns and meaning. Through History we have an insight into past civilisations and cultures which were both similar and different from our own. At the University of East Anglia we use a wide range of teaching methods including lectures, seminars and tutorials. Students benefit from the existence of an active research-led culture amongst staff, many prominent visiting speakers and international links within the School.

The School was founded in 1994 when historians from three of the university's interdisciplinary Schools came together out of a belief that a School of History could provide a better focus for historical activity at the University of East Anglia. Since then we have gone from strength to strength and in the most recent Research Assessment Exercise, 90 per cent of our research was classified as being of international importance or better. We concentrate on British and European history from the medieval to the contemporary period, which allows us to offer a very wide degree of choice within these areas to our students.
