Contact Hours

N.B. Below were the arrangements for the 2020-21 academic year. Depending on the feasibility of in-person teaching in 2021-22, we may move to longer seminars with fewer asynchronous activities.

  • Seminars: 9 x 1 hour sessions complemented by asynchronous activities
  • Practical class: 1 x 2 hour session
Private Study

History modules require students to undertake extensive independent research and reading to prepare for seminars and assessments. As a rough guide, students will be expected to read and prepare to comment on three substantial texts (articles or book chapters) for each seminar taking approximately 3 hours. Each assessment requires independent research, reading around 6-10 texts and writing and presenting the outcomes of this preparation in an essay, review, presentation or other related task.
