History at the University of Exeter brings together a lively and dynamic group that boasts some of the leading academic historians in the country.

Our staff provide postgraduates with a considerable breadth of experience and research expertise across the full range of the discipline, from post-Roman Europe to the contemporary world, covering both European and extra-European history.

Research is at the heart of History and our students are encouraged to come to research seminars and become an active part of the wider research community.

I have always loved History, and from A Levels I realised that I wanted to specialize in medieval period. I chose this university firstly because I loved doing my BA here. Also, as Exeter has a rich medieval background and the university has such a strong medieval department, I thought it would be the perfect place for both work experience and study!
