Why study history

The students’ perspective

See what students in the Department of History think of studying at Nottingham in these videos by our students, of our students, for our future students. These videos were made by the student video team in the Digital Transformations Hub.

If you would like advice and/or support from fellow students on arrival, you can sign up for our peer mentoring scheme. For more details email David Gehring.
