    Which do you think is best for History (Medieval/Early Modern in particular)?

    Which do you think is in the best location and why?

    And which do you think is a better Uni as a whole?

    My 5th University... cannot decide! Help!

    Exeter and Cardiff are on a par really for History and both offer good Medieval options. Cardiff's the busy city but Exeter's got a lovely campus.

    Wouldn't personally waste a choice on Manchester for History. Their department really isn't worth anything notable and you'd be better off with the other two

    Thanks for the information Although, I've heard a lot of people say that Cardiff is good for Medieval/Early Modern stuff but from what i've found, I can't find a great range of choice? :confused: Am I looking in the wrong place?

    That's quite reasonable for a department of Cardiff's size. And their titles may be slightly unrecognisable. 10 at least over 3 years is a good amount. You'll never be able to properly specialise as they don't like undergrads to do so and they may well expect you to study at least one module from each period.
