Studying your A Level

History at A Level is an opportunity to build on your existing experience studying 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)

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; problem solve 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.

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.

Pursuing your career

An A Level in history can allow you to go on to study history or other social sciences at university. However, your desired university will have entry requirements so be sure to check the grade required in this and associated subjects.
