Module availability

Modules available to postgraduate students in the 2018-19 academic year

Thank you for your interest in the postgraduate History modules running in the 2018/19 academic year. Below is a list of postgraduate History modules which currently have spaces available.

Students from departments other than History should check the list below and then select the module/s they would like to take via Portico when Portico opens for module registration. Students will receive a notification within a short period of time confirming whether or not we can accept them onto their requested module/s. Because the History department has strict caps on modules, spaces will be given on a first-come, first-served basis. Once a module is full to capacity it will not be possible to add additional students and students will then receive a 'reject' notification.

Updates to this webpage will be made on a regular basis. However, the list below should be treated as indiciative only; changes to availability will be frequent.

UCL History department students wishing to make final changes to their current module allocations should come to the module change session on Thursday 27 September in Gordon Square (16-18) B03 any time between 10:00 and 16:00. Module changes will be made when you attend this session, subject to availability.
