Here at Cardiff University I coordinate an exciting, innovative and award-winning group of courses collectively known as the Exploring the Past pathway. This pathway offers a route onto degrees in History, Ancient History, Archaeology and Religion for adults from all sorts of backgrounds. There are no entrance criteria and you don’t need any qualifications to enrol, so if you are interested in learning about the past then Exploring the Past is for you. You can find out more about it by clicking here, and if you would like to talk about enrolling then please do contact me on the email address or telephone number given above.
