We’re based in the heart of campus in the Main Building, a prime example of 1930s architecture which has undergone extensive refurbishment to combine a traditional setting with modern facilities, including the £15m student Hub.

The building includes lecture theatres, seminar and tutorial rooms, which are ideal for group discussions and one-to-one tuition, as well as IT resources and social learning spaces.

I really enjoyed the Time Detectives module where you learn how to investigate online archives, conduct oral history interviews, and use software. Loads of interesting stuff came out of that module.

In my first year I went to Zaragoza in Spain with the Erasmus scheme. It gave me the chance to see another culture, go to lectures at a foreign university and spend time with students from other courses.
