University of Nottingham has opted into the TEF and received a Gold award.
The Department of History at Nottingham offers an extremely wide range of modules covering from 500CE to the late 20th century and concerning countries all around the world. This course offers a an increasing amount of flexibility as the degree progresses, allowing you to tailor your studies to the geographical areas and periods of time which most suit your interests and aspirations. All modules are taught by experts in their field, through a mixture of lectures, seminars and tutorials. In particular, the Department of History at Nottingham places a strong emphasis on student-centred learning and the use of primary sources, making ours a unique learning experience.
In the first year this consists of three broad survey modules, which collectively cover the early Middle Ages to the present, as well as our innovative skills and methodology module, Learning History. In addition to these modules, optional modules must also be taken outside of the Department of History. This gives you the opportunity to pursue a subject that you have enjoyed previously, or you can experiment with something completely new. In the second year, you will take a compulsory module, The Contemporary World Since 1945, plus five more modules from history or other departments. In the final year, you will take a primary source-based special subject, write a 10,000 word dissertation, in addition to taking two specialist optional modules.
