Newman University, Birmingham has opted into the TEF and received a Silver award.
The Foundation Year offers an innovative new pathway into your degree. It is the first part of a four-year degree programme. It provides an alternative route for those unable to meet the traditional entry requirements for a three-year degree. It will prepare you for your degree studies in a supportive and stimulating learning environment. Students consistently rank our History degree at Newman as one of the best courses of its type in the UK, scoring 95% overall student satisfaction in the 2018 National Student Survey. This is because we offer students the chance to tailor their degree to their interests and our small-group teaching and one-to-one tutorials allow our students to flourish. The course offers a range of options that cover two thousand years of political, social, economic and religious history, taking our students from Ancient Rome to modern America. Why study History?
- A broad range of study: The opportunity to study modules covering four millennia of human history
- Outstanding feedback: Consistently ranked as one of the best History degrees in the UK for student satisfaction
- Small groups: Students are taught in small groups with opportunities for one-to-one tutorials
- Research-led teaching: Taught by experts who have published in the field
- Work placement module that offers real-world career experience in relevant fields
