Are you passionate about discovering how the world today has developed? Are you interested in analysing events from the past and hoping to improve the future? Are you curious about history?

Do you want to deepen your knowledge? Then this is the right course for you! This Oxbridge Home Learning course has been designed to be completed from your home at your own pace. It's flexible, convenient and comprehensive.

The study of history is a fascinating and rewarding pursuit, leading to a greater understanding not just of our past but also of how we came to be where we are in the present. This course aims to develop your understanding of the significance of history.

Going into A-level history is a smart move if you want a fascinating subject that offers you a range of career possibilities at the end. A-level history gives you a similar level of desirability as an English qualification does, as the methods of assessment are relatively the same, however A-level history gives you a much broader range of knowledge and can be considered as more interesting as a subject to study.
