 Studying history at the University of Nottingham allowed me to spend three years immersed in a subject that was stimulating and enjoyable. I had great flexibility to tailor my degree to my own tastes, especially in my final year.

 The history department here is wonderful. You can choose from many different topics and there are so many specialists in different areas. I'm studying the Druids and what they may or may not have believed, which I'm finding fascinating.
