The School of History at the University of Kent is recognised as one of the leading history departments in the country. Ranked second in the most recent Research Assessment Exercise, our students work alongside lecturers and tutors who are not just excellent teachers, but world-class researchers actively working at the forefront of their chosen field.
Our wide range of postgraduate degrees provide students with the opportunity to hone in on their particular interests, including a Modern History MA which has the option of studying for a term in Paris.
For the past five years, the School has consistently scored above 90% for student satisfaction on the National Student Survey - reflecting our inspiring teaching, lively and engaging student body and fantastic student support.
The strength of our degrees means that our graduates are highly sought after; the 2014 National Student Survey showed that 85% were in employment or further study shortly after graduation.
The medieval city of Canterbury is the ideal setting for the study of history, with its heritage apparent in its ancient streets and buildings. Kent is also a unique geographical location for the study of military history, with its significant sites ranging from Roman forts to a Cold War nuclear bunker.
