    My course at Queen Mary's is V101 yet I've noticed that most history courses elsewhere are V100. Anyone know if there's a difference?

    V101 is Modern History, so they've put an arbitrary date in somewhere (say 1400 or something) that's the earliest extent of their papers. Full V100 history courses allow you to go right back.

    Not necessarily as I'm doing the V100 and the earliest period we can do is about 1500.

    Define Modern FTB:p:

    I thought the V101 was to do with a possible european lanaguage or study element to it? Ie what RH offer - both the V100 and the V101 (which on UCAS says: History with a Year in Europe (4 years) (V101) ) King's offer the two different courses too and if you click the V101 it says "Applicants should also see R000 Modern Languages and RY00 Modern Language Plus, under Faculty of Arts and Humanities, for additional Russian and East European options."

    But that wouldn't fit with the QM course would it?

    There's a paper on the V100 History Tripos at Cam which allows you to study Ancient Greece, so back to about 400-500BC.

    Oh and i have a feeling that V101 is simply a modular UCAS code that is used for a variety of things. For example at Durham it refers to 'BA ANCIENT, MEDIEVAL AND MODERN HISTORY (V101)', while at RHUL its simply a four year history course with the extra year spent abroad.

    Thats pretty sucky, id like to do a few modules on classical greece, but i think Oxford's history course only goes back to 300ad. Ah well, i suppose how much the Cam history building sucks sort of negates the coolness gained from being able to study classical greece :P

    The earliest we can do on our v101 course is 751, medieval history. So I wouldn't call it modern history

    Start of the Modern era, duh! 1300s is Early Modern, so round about then.

    I don't understand the codes though- they seem to have been applied completely arbitrarily with no real logic to them!

    Some would disagree :p: The MA I want to do is a Modern History one and that starts at 1750

    I don't use Wiki full-stop. Only stuff I use online is mainly Jstor

    What I said and your reply must be one of the top ranked sort of banterous studenty things college parents say to Freshers. Other classics probably include giggling a bit as soon as the word 'bar' is mentioned.

    This could go on for hours! I could call it the Cheese Period, and it would be equally correct!

    However, Jstor rocks. Said it before numerous times, and I'll say it again. :five:

    I learnt to ignore the ucas course codes, they caused me more confusion than they're worth - at one point when I was shortlisting my choices I had probably 5 or 6 different codes for pretty much the same course.

    of all the things to get confused about, it takes some effort getting confused about courses through UCAS codes, especially when the actual title of the course is usually next to the code.
