A minimum of Grade C GCSE English Language is required for all programmes within the School of History, Archaeology and Religion. A summary of the minimum entry requirements is outlined below. However, for more detailed information please contact the School (the contact details are at the bottom of this document).
We do not include Critical Thinking in offers for joint degrees with the following subjects: Welsh, Economics, Sociology, Ancient History, Music, Religious Studies and Archaeology.
The School welcomes applications based on the broader and more flexible post-16 qualifications introduced in 2000, and will treat each application on its own merits. All degrees normally require at least two A-levels, with either one further Advanced level, or two AS levels. We are happy to consider other combinations of qualifications which include both vocational and academic A-levels. Please contact the School for further information or visit the UCAS website (www.ucas.ac.uk).

We also welcome applications from mature-age students with appropriate qualifications (usually an Access course which includes History or for Ancient History, the Access to Humanities route). Please note: the School does not normally make offers on a UCAS Tariff points basis. We do not consider candidates who offer General Studies or Critical Thinking A-levels as one of the three A levels and will exclude these subjects from any offers.
We welcome applications from people with alternative, vocational and overseas qualifications, or with combinations of qualifications or other relevant work / life experiences.
In the case of applicants whose first language is not English, competence in the English language is also a criterion of admission.
