Course Introduction

St Mary's provides a nourishing and nurturing environment for History students. There's a wide breadth of choice across the programme and dedicated academic staff are keen to ensure that you achieve your very best. Our curriculum is designed on the principle of research'led teaching: you will be taught by historians who are experts in their fields. The University is on the doorstep of all of the employment opportunities that London offers. Our history graduates have gone into a variety of careers, including teaching, recruitment and business. Recent graduates have also moved on to do postgraduate work at top universities in the UK and abroad. We have an excellent environment in which to study history: there are lots of historic houses in the area, including Strawberry Hill House, which is attached to the University. We are 20 minutes away from The National Archives and 40 minutes by public transport from The British Library. Our Final Year students have easy access to some of the best resources in the country in order to research and write their dissertation projects. Our collaboration with the National Archives at postgraduate level is an important element of our commitment to Public History.
