Introduction

Here at the School of History, Archaeology and Religion I coordinate the exciting, innovative and award-winning Exploring the Past pathway. Exploring the Past offers a route onto degrees in History, Ancient History, Archaeology and Religion for adults from all sorts of backgrounds. There are no entrance requirements and you don’t need any qualifications to enrol, so if you are interested in learning about the past then this pathway is for you. You can find out more about it by clicking here, and if you would like to talk about getting started then please do get in touch using the email address or telephone numbers given above. I also work in the university’s Centre for Lifelong Learning developing similar pathways in other subject areas – click here to learn more.
