What our students think

I knew as soon as I arrived on Highfield during one of the Open Days that this was the place that I wanted to study. The fact that the History Department was so diverse also helped a great deal – especially since I didn’t know at the time what period of History I wanted to specialise in!

I wanted to study at Southampton because it is a Russell Group University, has a diverse history department and I loved the friendliness and community.

Southampton has a great community of people. Both the students and lecturers are intellectual people, but also not pretentious making them easily approachable. It is a university with a perfect balance between the two.

My course has allowed me to use ancient and modern material to evaluate and question the events of the past - to see how the ancient world has influenced our modern lives as well as the parallels we can draw is fascinating.

I love the variety in the course. The hardest part is actually choosing what to study. I’ve studied a range of modules from the very modern America’s War on Terror to Medieval Castles.
