The School of History

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, all of 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.

All of our programmes are incredibly flexible, allowing students to tailor their degree around their interests. 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 2011 National Student Survey showed that 91% of our students were in employment or further study shortly after graduation and latest research shows that this statistic has increased to 96%.
