History ‘Top Books Guide’

Even if you are interested in studying History at university, the image of library shelves filled with thick, dusty, unwielding tomes might fill the hardiest of historians with fear. With so much literature to choose from, which reading should a prospective student prioritise? Immerse Education is here to help. We spoke with our mentor team who are currently studying History at top universities to ask them which books they think a young historian should read before applying.
