5 Modular degrees Almost all undergraduate degree programmes at the University are modular, which means you undertake modules of study which are usually assessed at the end of each semester. Under the modular system, you will normally be required to take modules totalling 60 credits in each semester. To graduate with a degree from The University of Nottingham you must take 360 credits of modules 120 in each year of study. Each module is usually worth 10 or 20 credits the higher the number of credits, the greater the amount of work on the module. The first year is a qualifying year, which means your degree classification will be determined by the work completed in your second and final years. Single honours degrees In your three years at Nottingham you will take a combination of compulsory and optional modules, mainly from those offered by the, but also with a choice of subsidiary modules from outside the department, particularly in your first and second years. For example, you may choose to take modules in archaeology, classics, philosophy or law, or even physics. Alternatively, you might wish to continue studying a language learned at school or college, or begin an entirely new language. A full list of subsidiary modules will be available at registration each year. To ensure a wide student choice, some historical modules offered by historians attached to other departments, such as American and Canadian studies and classics, are classed as history modules. Joint and combined honours degrees We offer a wide range of joint and combined honours courses to suit those with specialised or complementary interests. Some of these courses are administered by the, some by the School of Cultures, Languages and Area Studies and some by the School of English. As a joint honours student, you will divide your time between two subjects; as a combined honours student, you may even spend time between several subjects. Either way, you will gain a knowledge and understanding of a wider historical and cultural context. In your final year, you may have the opportunity to specialise in one subject. If you are considering applying for a joint honours course, you should also look for information from the other school or department involved on our online prospectus: Dissertation All single honours history students research and write a dissertation in their final year. Some joint honours students replace one of their scheduled modules with a dissertation on a subject that particularly interests them, or carry out further work on a topic introduced in a module they ve studied previously; others write on a topic agreed after discussion with tutors. The dissertation option is particularly good if you plan to undertake postgraduate study, as it will give you experience of the self-motivation and discipline required to carry out a relatively large research project. If there is something you ve always wanted to write about, it might end up being your dissertation topic. The best thing about my course is the variety it gives me, and it means you can really make every year at university very different.

For information on the Russian element of your degree, please see BA History and East European Cultural Studies This degree is aimed at students who wish to combine their interests in history with a focus on Eastern Europe, and in particular the vibrant and dynamic cultures of Russia and Southeast Europe. In history you will be able to choose from an extensive range of modules, including options in Russian and Eastern European history. In the East European cultural studies part of your degree you will study the societies, histories, politics and cultures of the territory of Eastern 18 19

11 Europe and Russia from the Byzantine period to the 21st century, beginning with modules that approach study of these cultures at introductory level, and specialising as your studies progress. Optional modules include topics in the literature, cinema, popular culture and history of Russia and Southeast Europe, with a particular focus on the region that was formerly Yugoslavia. If you wish, you may study a Slavonic language: Russian, Serbian/Croatian or Slovene are all offered from beginners level. By the end of your course you will have acquired a breadth of knowledge across the periods of history you have chosen to study, as well as a thorough grounding in the techniques and theories used by historians. You will also offer specialist knowledge of the histories and cultures of Russia and Southeast Europe, which are increasingly important contexts for international diplomacy, politics and business. Your transferable skills will include the ability to plan and carry out research, to analyse texts and other information critically and to communicate and present ideas effectively. You may also be able to offer expertise in a less widely taught language. For information on the Eastern European cultural studies element of your degree, please see BA Modern European Studies BA Modern European Studies is available in three different branches: modern history and two modern languages; politics and two modern languages; or modern history, politics and one modern language. All three components have equal weighting in the degree. Languages offered for this degree are: French (post-a level only); German, Russian (beginners or post-a level), Spanish; and Portuguese, Slovene, Serbian/Croatian or Dutch (all beginners only). You cannot take two languages from beginners level and you must ensure you indicate which branch you wish to follow on your UCAS form. In addition to core language modules, you will select from a range of optional modules relating to the history, culture, politics, literature, film or linguistics of the languages you are studying. You will also select modules from a wide range of historical and/or political topics. On graduation you will have achieved a good command of the language(s) you have studied and will be able to use these in social and professional situations. You will also have acquired an understanding of European and world history and politics and will have developed sophisticated analytical skills. Your year abroad will demonstrate to potential employers that you are adaptable and independent. Your third year is spent abroad in a country or countries where your chosen language or languages are spoken. For information on the modern European studies element of your degree, please see The remaining joint and combined honours course is run by the School of English. Examples of typical modules for the history element of your degree are given in the table for single honours on page 11. BA English and History This course combines the study of history with the opportunity to study English language, literature and drama from old English to the present day, while developing the skills required for the writing and debating of history. In history the core module in the second year is The Contemporary World since 1945 which considers key historiographical debates about the world in which we now live. For information on the English element of your degree, please see Students outside Ancaster Hall, one of 12 halls of residence on University Park Campus

12 How will I study? Our courses are delivered through lectures, seminars, tutorials and one-to-one supervision for your dissertation. The aim is to stimulate your curiosity and provide you with essential information by means of lectures in the first instance, so as to establish a solid grounding in the core of the subject. Certain topics and areas are then considered in more detail in seminars. Lectures Lectures are the most formal type of instruction and are valuable in that they: present information which is not readily available in books can give you an opportunity to hear a specialist develop a significant (perhaps as yet unpublished) argument show visual material for example, slides, CDs, PowerPoint images and DVDs or video clips Seminars In seminars you will be taught with a group of fellow students, with discussion focusing on a text or topic you ve previously prepared, in an atmosphere that is friendly and informal. The purpose of the seminar is to provide an opportunity to try out new ideas and to think through difficulties with the support of fellow learners. Students often establish friendships through seminar groups, as well as learning more about other people s ideas. Most modules combine lecture and seminar instruction, so you will have a chance to discuss and question the material presented in lectures. Your week Your typical week s work will feel strange at first after school or college since there are fewer timetabled teaching hours. Each week in the first year you can expect to attend about hours of lectures and seminars. For the rest of the time you will be working independently, doing the necessary reading in preparation for seminars, writing essays or working on seminar presentations. In addition, you will be able to speak to your personal tutor or any other member of academic staff during their office hours to further guide you in your studies. In your first year as a single honours student you would be expected to attend one hour of a Learning History lecture, as well as a one-hour skills session, and a one-hour seminar per week. You would also attend three hours of lectures for the three core modules, as well as a one-hour seminar for each of these. In addition, you would attend classes in each semester for your non-history subsidiaries these would amount to at least three hours a week. In your second year you would attend six hours of lectures or larger group classes a week (two hours for each option or core module) as well as an hour of seminars for each, or a two-hour seminar every fortnight (ie a total of nine hours a week in class). In addition, you will attend our Doing History module for one hour a week, which supports all of our second-year modules. In your final year you would spend four hours a week in your Special Subject seminar, and have an hour per week in lectures preparing you for your dissertation. In addition you would spend three hours per week in an optional seminar, as well as attending a related one-hour lecture. You would also receive individual dissertation supervisions. Key Information Sets Key Information Sets (KIS) are comparable sets of information about full or part-time undergraduate courses and are designed to meet the information needs of prospective students. All KIS data is published on the Unistats website: For Nottingham s KIS data, please see individual course entries at Students make use of the computers in the Hallward Library on University Park Campus

13 How will I be assessed? Studying outside the at Lenton Grove on University Park Campus. Our degree programmes are modular, which means you undertake modules of study, some of which last for a semester, and some of which last for the whole academic year. The teaching year The teaching year is divided into two semesters. Each one has 11 weeks of teaching, plus another two or three weeks for examinations. The second semester follows the same pattern, but there are an additional two weeks at the end to complete the assessment process and to enable returning students to discuss their results with tutors and begin to plan the next session s work. Although the teaching year is divided into two semesters for organisational purposes, this is fitted into the traditional pattern of three terms one before Christmas; one between Christmas and Easter; and one after Easter. Assessment methods Assessment for your degree is based on a combination of coursework; including essays, posters, presentations, primary source analysis and examinations. The precise assessment varies from one module to another, although all entail the same amount of work. Where a module lasts for one semester, assessment is undertaken during that semester. Where a module fills two semesters, assessment takes place across both, but any exams will take place at the end of the second semester. Your final degree classification Your second year counts for 40% of your final degree; your third year for 60%. The first year is a qualifying year, which means you must pass this year to progress to the second year, but your mark will not contribute to your degree classification.
