We had deep discussions about politics, different views on history and philosophy, as well as some controversial current events; it was all very interesting.

Historians engage in a rigorous academic debate based on critical analysis and evaluation of the evidence available. With support from your university tutor, you will explore current principles of best historical practice as you discover a broad range of historical themes through historiography and analysis of key source material. Your studies will take you through centuries of history from all over the globe.

During the two-week summer programme you will live and study in a university college as you uncover what the study of history entails beyond the classroom. As well as developing your skills as a historian, you’ll also gain insight into life as a university student as you learn to live independently and study proactively. Surrounded by like-minded peers from all over the world, you’ll form firm friendships while enjoying our busy programme of social and cultural events that take help you explore the city.
