HistoryWhy do a short course in History?

Studying a single subject lets you:

  • Find other ways into a degree course
  • Update your professional knowledge
  • Follow a personal interest.

If you're interested in completing a single subject, you can study it in two ways:

  • Single subject: Attend lectures, tutorials and submit work for assessment and examination.
  • Audit subject: Attend the lecture for your chosen subject without submitting work for examination. A great option if you're studying for personal interest and not applying to a degree course.

While there is no guarantee of entry into a degree, many students have used successfully completed single subjects as the basis for entry. You may also be eligible for credit for the subjects you successfully complete.
