Study History With Great Private Tutors Across Australia

Nowadays it seems that we constantly cast our view toward the future, in areas from technology to the environment to international politics. But there's actually a lot to be said for looking back and learning from the past. For as long as humans have lived together, they have told stories and passed down knowledge, sometimes through family or a professional social institution such as a university. Often, we tell these stories with a view to teaching something to the people in our family or society.

History is taught for the duration of all Australian school years, with students learning semester after semester about anything from art history to international political history. A student can also choose to study history in Year 11 and 12 exams, specialising in areas like Revolutions. Another option is to undertake degrees at a higher education institution, usually as part of an Arts degree. Now, it's becoming less common to study humanities degrees like a history program, especially at a post-graduate level such as a Master's course.

Get Some Extra Professional Help With A Private Course

Whether you're a student on campus at high school or studying a Bachelor's or Master's level at university in an online mode course, it's normal to feel like you might need a little revision help as the weeks go by. This is where Superprof comes in! If you view the Superprof website, you'll find professional Australian tutors who have years of experience and plenty of knowledge to share with their students.

The best part of hiring a professional tutor is that you can create a program that will give you exactly what you need to support you in your classes or degree. For example, a high school student might need a tutor for the semester or a few weeks before their final exam as a way to revise and build confidence. A Bachelor of Arts or Humanities student might want a tutor for the duration of their course, even through to a post-graduate level.

You can also fit the schedule and mode to your preferences. You can organise lessons face to face or online, at home or at the campus of an educational institution. All you need to do is view one of the many online tutor profiles, choose one you like, contact them and organise your first class!

Above all, a Superprof tutor will have the professional experience and knowledge of history to truly help you improve your level of understanding in the fields you're most interested in. You can even find specialists to help you with particular areas like art history or details surrounding important historical events.

All in all, supplementing your studies through courses with a private tutor can be a great way to not only increase your level of knowledge about historical events but also to manage your time and stay on top of your workload.



Get Going With a History Program at an Australian Institution

As we mentioned before, high school students spend years learning about historical events, but it's only with higher education studies that you can really start to get a full understanding of different historical periods, from ancient times to the modern era. These studies are also essential if you want to pursue a career in the field, whether in an Australian or international context.

The first step to starting your university career will be to apply for a Bachelor's degree course. Few universities offer studies solely in history, but instead offer them as minor or major studies as part of a Bachelor of Arts, Economics or International Politics. The top 3 Australian universities that offer these types of programs are:

  • Australian National University;
  • The University of Sydney; and
  • The University of Melbourne.

All of these universities accept students who apply straight after high school, as well as those who perhaps took a long time to choose their course. International students are also welcome at almost every institution in Australia. A Bachelor of Arts program at one of the three costs around $10,000 per year (although this varies from institution to institution), but there are plenty of scholarships available for students.

Choosing Your History (HIST) Units

Of course, with each semester of your program, you'll have to choose the HIST units that most interest you and that will provide you with the skills you need to pursue the career you want. Some units will be compulsory, as they'll provide you with the skills to do things like conduct research or write papers.

However, the other units you chose will contribute to your major and this is where you get to specialise. Basically speaking, we can separate historical eras into the following:

  • Ancient Studies: In these courses, your weeks will focus not only on the elite of the Roman, Chinese or South American civilisations of the ancient world but also on the regular people. You can learn about family life in Ancient Greece, along with politics.
  • Middle Ages and Medieval History: By looking at art and important documents from this time, you can use the duration of your courses to societies like the Vikings or the monarchies of Europe.
  • Modern History: This period spans the duration of the Englightenment, through to the time of many international revolutions and the World Wars, so you can master your knowledge of this era of international political change.
  • Cotemporary History: Of course, modern history didn't end with World War II, and there are full courses that exist covering subjects like Cold War America and or the development of the Australian Economy.

So, as you spend weeks semester after semester studying these different time periods, don't forget that you can always ask for help from a master Superprof tutor. They can help you from anywhere in Australia, even offering online mode lessons.

Whether you need help applying for scholarships or you want to improve your writing skills, a Superprof tutor will be able to help you master your studies in History!
