Prospective Undergraduates


History at Exeter will take you on a journey through the human race in historic times: its activities, ideas, creations, institutions and impact.

It will enhance your understanding of other subject areas and improve your awareness of other cultures, providing skills that will be of use throughout your life.

I have really enjoyed my course so far. I've enjoyed the freedom of being able to work with the wider community, outside of the structured lectures and seminars. I learnt a lot about the practical and ethical implications of ‘doing’ history as well as the multiple roles a historian has to play. 

My time at university has widened what I would consider history, and has challenged my own assumptions that I bring to my work.
