History at the University of Leicester
We can offer you a broad choice of periods and subjects, from the fifth century to the contemporary world and from English local history to globalisation.
Flexibility is at the heart of our degrees. Your first year will be spent acquiring foundational skills and knowledge in your areas of interest with choice and flexibility in what you study. Later on you will have even more freedom to select your modules and build a degree around topics that inspire you. With experts in a plethora of topics, you will always be able to find modules that pique your curiosity and quench your thirst for knowledge – from medieval monarchy to the history of alcohol in America.
Since history is not confined to one place, nor will you be. We share links with universities across Europe, Australia, North America and the Far East. By choosing to study abroad you can not only gain new perspectives on the past but witness new life, cultures and people in the present.
We understand and empathise with the increasing pressure and expectations faced by young people and we take a broad-minded approach to considering applicants from a wide range of educational backgrounds. You will be part of a genuinely friendly and inclusive academic community of students and staff. We creatively support your intellectual development while preparing you for your journey beyond academia.
