Chelsea Kilian

What do you enjoy most about your course at NTU?

“I enjoy its specific focus on the practice of making history. Other competing courses seemed to be more of a continuation of the undergraduate degree, but NTU’s course expands the field of study to consider the nature of being a historian and of history itself. It’s fascinating to study, and I feel that it’s enabling me to really develop myself as a historian.”

What do you think about the course staff?

“The course staff are pretty amazing. The administrators have helped me settle in and understand how the course and university system work as an international student. The lecturers and tutors in particular are approachable, helpful, and highly passionate about their subject areas, which is reflected in the quality of their teaching.”

Why would you recommend your course / NTU to someone looking to study MA History?

“There is a wide range of staff expertise and a varied syllabus across different periods and cultures which makes the course exciting and suitable for a range of student research interests. Furthermore, the course is tailored toward building practical skills of historical investigation, expanding the knowledge base from the undergraduate degree nicely. And, as mentioned previously, the course staff are very helpful in supporting students’ learning.”

What do you think about the facilities available to you?

“The facilities available are of a high quality. As a historian, I have a prime interest in the libraries. I appreciate the helpfulness of the library staff, and that the opening hours are often 24/7 during term-time. Also, as an international student, I appreciate the Global Lounge. It is a great facility that offers a place to meet other international students, and hosts many cool cultural events.”
