The Branch’s contribution to the Life-Long Learning experience

The Historical Association is committed to adult learning and promoting history at all levels. Our courses are a brilliant way to learn about a new topic or to meet people similarly interested in history. All of the classes are taught by experienced tutors, knowledgeable in their subject, and group discussion is very much encouraged.

Courses in the Community

Our Courses in the Community have become very popular over the past few years and the Outclass Learning Group is looking forward to being able to provide more courses for you. Each lecture lasts for 2 hours (with a break halfway through). The courses are delivered in a friendly yet informative manner and discussion is welcomed. There are no essays to write.
