British Empire, its Rise and Fall
History Diploma


British Empire, Rise and Fall [Dip.Hist.] Based on the work of Niall Ferguson, the course examines the roles of pirates, planters, missionaries, mandarins, bankers and bankrupts in the creation of the world’s largest empire, an empire which set the entire world on the road to modernity. The course concludes with the closing down of the Empire and the somewhat excessive haste to be out of Empire which caused hundreds of years of good government to be replaced with chaos and the effects of which are seen still in the twenty first century.

Your student pack includes the necessary text together with a student guide and study assistance. In addition to the material, one-to-one help is available throughout the course by email.
