Prospective students: undergraduate

As a history undergraduate at UCL, you'll have access to a department of historians all working at the cutting edge of their fields.

All of your seminars will be in groups of 15 or fewer (10 or fewer in your final year special subject classes). And every single piece of work you do for us, including exam papers, will be returned to you in a one-to-one tutorial with the person who taught you. Not all history departments can make these promises.

Full course information, including information related to indicative modules, can be found on the individual programme prospectus pages:

Our programmes

We teach four undergraduate programmes at UCL History. The BAs in Ancient History and History are three-year courses. History with a Year Abroad will take you four years of full-time study to complete. Select from the list below to visit the UCL prospectus pages and find out more about each of the options we offer.

Open days

The best way to find out more and answer any questions that you have about the course or the university is to attend an open day. For details of UCL’s pre-application open days please click here. Starting in March, we will be running a variety of online virtual open days for offer holders. These will include taster seminars, Q&A sessions with academics and students, and other remote activities. Offer holders will be contacted in advance about these events by email. 

Whether you are thinking of applying or already hold an offer please do explore our website for further information on all the modules currently on offer. You can find module details for the BA History degree here and for BA Ancient History here. If you are interested in our History with a Year Abroad degree, please click here
