This workshop took place at the HA Annual Conference May 2016 in Harrogate.

Sixth-form students applying to study history at university have no shortage of data about contact hours, league table rankings, employment rates and student satisfaction. What’s missing in university guides is comparative information about the periods, places, themes and methods they will study on history degree programmes. This session compares and analyses the compulsory elements of every single-honours history degree in the UK. This information will enable students to make informed choices between history programmes and will provide teachers with an overview of history teaching in higher education.
