Online Advanced Diploma in Local History

The Undergraduate Advanced Diploma in Local History is a one-year part-time course providing training in key concepts and methods of historical studies. It is delivered entirely online, so you can work at home with access to the course material, your tutor and fellow students.

The course will help you improve the key skills you need for historical research, especially the manipulation of information using databases. With the help of your tutor, you will produce your own piece of local historical research.  Formal qualifications are not essential – just enthusiasm for the subject and a high level of commitment and motivation.
