University of Leicester has opted into the TEF and received a Silver award.
What ideas have transcended the ages? How has antiquity impacted the world today? By studying a range of historical periods, you’ll look at the ways in which the modern and ancient worlds are inextricably linked.
In your first year, you will split your studies equally between ancient history and history, taking core modules in Greek and Roman history and choosing from history modules covering medieval, early modern and global history. In your second year, you will continue to balance your studies equally between the two subjects. You will have more opportunity to shape the course of your degree this year as you will be able to choose option modules from the areas of ancient history and history that interest you the most. You will also take a core module focusing on sources and methods in ancient history. In third year, you can spend it studying abroad at one of our partner institutions (eligibility is dependent on your academic performance in Years 1 and 2). Alternatively, you can opt to continue studying at the University and complete your degree in three years. Please note, a year spent abroad still incurs a tuition fee, but this is much lower than for a normal year at Leicester. See our website for details. In your final year, you will write a dissertation on a topic of your choice. You will also choose option modules from a wide selection. For full module details, please see our website.
Assessment is through exams and essays, source analyses, group projects and presentations.
