History new tariff range

Oxford Brookes University has announced a new entry tariff of 112-120 UCAS points for BA History in a bid to widen access to ‘elite subjects’.

Professor Joanne Begiato, who researches the history of emotions and material culture said: “I think History is often perceived as an ‘elite subject’ and one that it is only available to students who achieve top grades. I strongly believe that everybody should have access to this relevant, thought-provoking subject at University, and I hope our new tariff range will encourage applications from students who are passionate about studying History, but may have been put off by our entry requirements in the past.”

To further improve access to the Humanities, Oxford Brookes has also launched a new Foundation in Humanities course. This one year course provides an introduction to the subject knowledge and academic skills required for successful undergraduate study. Completion of the Foundation in Humanities year provides direct entry onto the BA degree in History. Therefore it is ideal for students who want to study History at Oxford Brookes, but do not have the requisite grades to go straight into the three year BA degree.

Oxford Brookes has a strong reputation for its History programme; in the most recent National Student Survey the course received a 94% student satisfaction score. The department enjoys an international reputation for its research, and offers expertise in areas such as the history of crime, the history of medicine, and modern political history.

Further information on the History course offered by Oxford Brookes can be found on the School of History, Philosophy and Culture webpages.
