Description

What is the course about?

This day course will deliver an interactive-lecture on the British Raj, Colonial rule and the impact this had on Indian nationalism.

• The development and rise of Indian nationalist responses to British rule.

What will I achieve?
By the end of this course you should be able to...

• Explore aspects of British culture and society in India
• Examine Indian nationalist responses to British rule.

What level is the course and do I need any particular skills?

This is an ‘introductory’ level course and does not assume any previous study or reading although you will need a
reasonable standard of English to keep up with the course. As with most of our history and current affairs courses,
an open mind and a willingness to listen and to think about views with which you are not familiar or may not agree are more important than specific levels of skills.

How will I be taught, and will there be any work outside the class?

The day course will consist of tutor presentation, with opportunities for questions and comments.

Are there any other costs? Is there anything I need to bring?

No. There are no extra costs apart from your own note-taking materials.

When I've finished, what course can I do next?

Please see the 'world history' section on the college website: www.citylit.ac.uk for other courses in this area.

An eye-opening class giving insights into Indian history and its impact on India today. Taught by an inspirational and very knowledgeable tutor. Covered a lot of ground but brought out the big picture.
