The Department of History here is a unique one, providing a brilliant balance between social and academic pursuits. 

I highly encourage anyone to join the History Society. Alongside organising society events, it runs a trip abroad, multiple sports teams, and the incredibly popular volunteering in schools project, which helped me decide what job I wanted to do and was an unforgettable experience!
