I have loved absolutely every minute of my degree programme. Not only has the programme allowed me to pursue a passion, it has also nurtured my own personal development, both as a ‘historian’ and as an individual.

The most enjoyable part of my degree is the opportunity to undertake original research with a group of people who are equally as passionate about the subject.

I’m having to learn to express my research in a way which satisfies the demanding academic standards. But my supervisor is very supportive and I’m enjoying getting to grips with the subject. I would encourage anyone to consider taking a PhD in a subject that really interests them. It’s incredibly stimulating and very rewarding.

When the PhD is over, I’m hoping to use the skills I’ve learned through work and study in an area such as heritage consultancy.
