    Presentación

    War is one of the most spectacular of historic events. War has been the violent catalyst for change throughout human history. War inflicts terrible suffering and degradation, and yet evokes great bravery and heroism. A simple, meaningful definition of war is not easily achieved because such explanations are insufficient for the scope and scale of this human phenomenon. A single perspective or approach is inadequate if we are to understand war. The BA War and Society degree aims to provide comprehensive learning in both the understanding of war historically, politically and militarily, and its connection to society through consideration of the cultural production generated by the experience of war.

    Requisitos

    All applicants receive individual consideration. Our preferred offers for UK applicants are BBB-BBC at A-level. However, flexible offers are made on review of the application form, after taking into consideration the subjects studied, predicted or achieved grades, reference and personal statement.

    For candidates offering the International Baccalaureate, a typical offer would be 32-30 points. We ask for Welsh Baccalaureate plus BC at A-level. Access candidates should have 15 Distinctions and 18 Merits. Candidates studying for American qualifications should have a minimum of 550 in each part of the SAT reasoning and subject tests (or 1650 overall). We require a minimum IELT score of 6.0.
