The site gives students the opportunity to read about a topic that isn't linked to their A-level curriculum You can discover resources such as extra reading material, links to external websites and exercises to try out.
The site is part of a national scheme of HE+ partners. However, even if your school isn't participating in this, you can still use the resources. While there won't be the opportunity to get feedback on your responses to the questions, we hope that you find them useful to develop your skills and deepen your understanding of the subject area.
No prior knowledge is assumed, so please have a look, whatever you subject interests are. The first topic is The Historical Figure of Jesus of Nazareth. More topics will be released on a monthly basis and will include the Religious Right in the US, Medieval Theology, Islamic Philosophy, The Dead Sea Scrolls, and Perfect Being Theology.
You can access the first topic and sign up to receive an email when further topics are added at www.myheplus.com/subjects/religious-studies
