Non-History Students - Module Availability

History modules available to non-History department students.

Please note this web page currently applies to the 2019/20 academic year. We will update the relevant information once we have completed our module allocation process for 2020/21.

Thank you for your interest in the History department modules. UCL students from departments outside of History may be able to take History department modules as part of their programme, subject to availability. This webpage lists the History modules with availablility and will be updated regularly as module approvals take place. Module availability will change frequently so please do keep checking back for updates. 

Students from outside of History should refer to this list and, if they would like to take any of the available modules, should select the module/s on Portico once Portico opens for module registration. The History department has strict caps on modules so spaces to interdepartmental students are given on a first-come, first-served basis.
