Student Profile(s)

Amy Mcsweeney

"My favourite thing about master’s study is that you’re better placed to pursue original research. History at undergraduate level requires that you learn about what happened to whom when, whilst postgraduate studies give you the skills to ask your own questions, not just learn the answers to other people’s."
