Why did you choose the University of Birmingham?

I chose Birmingham primarily because of the quality of the course and the extent to which it matched with my specific research areas and historical interests. As I undertook an undergraduate BA in History at Birmingham from 2014-2017, I was familiar with the department and was impressed with the quality of teaching and research. I also chose to stay on at the university due to my sense of involvement in the academic community here. The college actively encourages student engagement, which creates a lovely sense of participation and contribution.

What has been the highlight of your time at Birmingham?

The highlight of my time at Birmingham has been getting involved in the extracurricular elements of the department. The School of History and Cultures (and College of Arts and Law as a whole) host’s workshops and seminars throughout the year, in which students are actively encouraged to come and listen to the leading experts in respective fields discussing their work. Additionally, as a Birmingham Research Institute of History and Cultures (BRIHC) scholar, I also participate in assisting research, and writing contributions for the BRIHC blog about events and research going on in the department. This is really interesting work and also valuable experience, and the department actively encourages people to get involved beyond their teaching hours and research.
