Find out more about the TEF.

This course provides an integrated and thorough combination of History and Theology. It provides students with a broad curriculum in both fields – inspired by the lecturers research. For History you will be able to select modules ranging from the medieval period and the Tudors to the modern and contemporary period, including modern post-war Britain and America. In addition, you will be able to decide to study British, European, American and African history.

Modules include traditional survey courses on subjects such as Tudor monarchy or the Cold War and they will also introduce you to new specialist themes, such as the rise of graphic novels, the 1990s Cool Britannia music scene, or the development of New York as a world city. What is great is that the choice of modules – conventional or more cutting edge subjects– is up to you. For Theology the curriculum examines in detail the place of theology and religion in the contemporary world. You study the place of the Bible in Western Culture, contemporary theological ideas as well as the interaction between religion, ethics and contemporary culture. In year 2 you can develop your specialist interests by studying modules in Christian theology, biblical studies, religious studies or a mixture of all three. You also have the chance to undertake a work or schools placement in year 2. In your final year you undertake a dissertation in a subject of your choice alongside further specialist modules in Christian theology or biblical studies. Students are offered excellent choice and high quality specialist teaching. The programme gains from having strong church historians working with outstanding theologians.

The standard entry requirement for this programme is IELTS 6.0 with no element lower than 5.5. However, you can begin your 3-year degree programme with IELTS 5.5. Our International Route allows you to take 4 credit-bearing modules in International English Studies (IES) as part of your first year studies. This means you study 4 modules in your chosen subject and 4 in International English. The IES Modules allow you to focus on personal language development and your use of English as an academic language. Then, at the end of your first year, you’ll have all the necessary language skills to transfer to full study of your main subject. If you have an IELTS score under 5.5 you can still begin a 3-year degree programme with us. In this case we provide a 5 or 10 week intensive Presessional Programme in English language and academic skills. For the 10 week Programme you’ll need IELTS 4.5, and IELTS 5.0 for the 5 week Programme.

Further details of our international entry requirements can be found on our website.
