The Cambridge Pre-U History course requires learners to study different areas and substantial periods of history.
The course encourages historical debate and discussion. It raises questions which elicit learners’ supported views, judgements and comparisons.
The course encourages learners to use independent study skills, to read widely, write fluently, and to develop the capacity to formulate and justify ideas about the past. It includes document-based studies to develop learners' skills in interpreting and evaluating evidence.
