Studying your A-Level

History at A-Level is an opportunity to build on your existing knowledge of History.

You will learn how to critically analyse sources and historic accounts and put forward structured arguments.

During your course you will study:

  • The Industrialisation of Britain between 1783 and 1885.
  • Democracy and Nazism in Germany between the first and second World Wars (1918-1945).
  • You will also carry out a historical investigation about a 100 year period of your choice.

As you explore each of these units, you will develop a keen eye for detail, identifying critical moments in the course of history.

You will be challenged to test the robustness of your sources through problem-solving and argue in a structured and balanced way.

Upon completion of the course you will have the demonstratable knowledge required to take your study of history to degree level and beyond.

Getting Started

learndirect is a national leader in distance learning courses. That means you don’t have wait for the post, as all of your course materials can be found in a convenient online portal.

As soon as you enrol with us you can start studying your History A-Level. There’s no need to wait for ‘term’ to start. There are no term dates or class times, just your desire to learn and achieve.

This gives you the flexibility to study when it works for you. You can plan your studies around your existing commitments rather than the other way around. The only specific deadline to work towards is your exam – exam sittings are held once per year in May or June.

But distance learning doesn’t mean you’re doing it by yourself. From the moment you start your course, you will have a tutor assigned to help you. They will provide advice and guidance during your studies. They will also be marking your assignments and giving you comprehensive feedback.

This enables you to make continual, positive progress throughout.

Frequently Asked Questions

A-Level History in the UK can be challenging due to its rigorous academic demands, extensive reading requirements, and the need for critical analytical skills. However, many students find it enjoyable because it offers a deep exploration of historical events, societies, and individuals, fostering a profound understanding of the past and its impact on the present. The subject encourages students to develop strong research, writing, and debating skills, fostering a sense of curiosity and a passion for uncovering the complexities of human history. The opportunity to engage with diverse perspectives and draw connections between different historical periods provides a rewarding intellectual journey, making A-Level History not only demanding but also intellectually stimulating and fulfilling for those who have a genuine interest in unravelling the intricacies of the past.
Our online A-Level History course covers a diverse range of topics, one of which includes The Industrialisation of Britain between 1783 and 1885, where you’ll examine the transformative period of the Industrial Revolution and its profound societal, economic, and technological impacts. Another area you’ll study includes Democracy and Nazism in Germany between the First and Second World Wars (1918-1945), which encompasses a comprehensive exploration of the complex political landscape, the rise of Nazism, and the challenges faced by Germany during this tumultuous period. Additionally, you are tasked with conducting a historical investigation within a 100-year timeframe of your choice, providing an opportunity for independent research and critical analysis. This diverse curriculum allows our A-Level History students to gain a comprehensive understanding of different historical contexts and refine their analytical skills through the exploration of significant events and themes.
An A-Level in History opens doors to diverse paths. It paves the way for degrees in subjects like history, law, international relations, and even journalism, setting you up for careers in fields like teaching, heritage management, research, law, or even media. But its true strength lies in the transferable skills it hones – critical thinking, analysis, and communication – making you highly employable across various sectors like finance, government, and even creative industries.
