Prospective Students

UCL History offers a remarkable range of BA, MA and PhD programmes, addressing an enormous range of periods, places, and styles of history.

We teach and research over 5,000 years of history from the Ancient Middle East to the present day, covering every continent. Whether you're interested in medieval or modern China, the ancient or the modern near east, north or south America, Africa, Europe and Britain, you'll find that our department hosts some of the most exciting courses around.

We'll show you the wealth of approaches you could take to these periods and places, whatever type of history you're interested in - political, social, cultural, religious, gender, intellectual, art, administrative, legal, imperial or international. We'll do that in small groups and with tutorial teaching that will give you a really great university experience in one of the world's greatest cities, and in one of the world's best history departments.
