The University warmly welcomes applications from students studying the Key Skills qualification. However, as the opportunities to take these modules are not open to all applicants, currently this is not an essential requirement of the University.

Temario


to stimulate critical study of historical & cultural/linguistic topics, especially in regard to the target language;
to develop advanced communication skills in the target language, bachelorsed on a sound understanding of the structures of that language;
to develop and extend students' powers of critical and analytical thought and logical argument by applying them to historical & cultural/linguistic interpretation of primary, secondary and critical sources;
to extend students' powers of critical analysis and logical argument by applying them to historical and cultural/linguistic interpretation, and to develop their capacity to communicate and present ideas orally and in writing;
to advance the ability of students to work independently and to organise effectively their own schedules of personal study;
to provide a broadly bachelorsed and challenging curriculum, bachelorsed upon the study of diverse historical periods and cultures;
to develop an appreciation of a variety of theoretical and methodological approaches with reference to particular historical courses and periods as well as to the target language and its literature and culture;
to provide the staff expertise and learning resources necessary to enable students to engage effectively with their studies;
to produce graduates possessing the transferable skills of linguistic excellence and of self-management and independence essential for employment, postgraduate study, or further training.
With well over 30 members of staff in History engaged in research, our courses are among the most diverse in the UK. Problems of interpretation, difficulties of incomplete data and unexplored aspects of history help develop problem solving skills. Teamwork, research skills and effective communication are essential tools of the historian. Excellence in teaching and learning recognised internally and nationally: a colleague won a Teaching Excellence Award and one has secured national funding to develop use of digital resources in teaching by bringing our libraries' Special Collections into the age of the app. Emphasis placed on Arab cultural analysis through history, film, and literature.
You will be taught through a mixture of formal lectures, seminars and tutorials. You will spend approximately 12 hours each week in formal study sessions. For every hour spent at University you will be expected to complete a further 2 - 3 hours independent study. You will also need to study during the holiday periods. The individual study component could be spent reading, producing written work, revising for examinations or working in the University's Language Centre
Our programmes are assessed in various ways: examinations, oral examinations (where language study is part of your degree), presentations and coursework. Many courses are assessed through a mixture of techniques. In your final year, you will write a dissertation.
History
Your time will be split equally between History and your modern language with 60 credits in each area.
In History you will have broad range of options covering a variety of topics, thematically, temporally and geographically.


Arabic

In Year 1 Arab language instruction is 'ab initio'. 'Ab initio' students have seven contact hours per week with their nominated mother-tongue teacher as part of a course specifically designed to build confidence in coMasterhension, writing, speaking and listening skills. As our above awards indicate, we excel in using different forms of e-learning to enhance language acquisition, including podcasting. In years 2 and 4 the language component of the course includes three contact hours per week in addition to working on set assignments and undertaking private study.
The Arab culture units offer a range of courses from the filmic and literary to the historic and religious, all of which reflect academic staff research interests.
