I do normal history, but it's pretty much the same for both courses. The lecturers are all friendly and helpful, I've never had a problem with them. Winchester is a very good course for history, given the history of Winchester itself. If your daughter loves history, which I presumes she does, she'll love Winchester, it has history everywhere.
If you want to be persuaded on going to Winchester, the city is fantastic. It's a small community (40k population) and a lovely place to live in. I'd consider living here when I'm older. The university is small for its number of students but punches well above its weight in the high quality of its teaching, less students means more interaction with teachers, you're a name to them, not a number.
Yes, there are. In the first year and first semester you will have to do a 15-20 minute GROUP presentation, you will only have to talk for 2-3 minutes infront of about maybe 120 people I guess. In your first year and second semester you will have to do a 15 minute GROUP presentation, but in a smaller group sizes and to a smaller audience.
I've just picked my modules for my second year, of which I've seen that you have to do a SOLO presentation. Everyone has to do this.
Just remember, everyone is in the same boat as you when you do presentations. I dreaded doing my first one, I had never done public speaking before in my life, but once it's over you find out it's not so bad and you can do it. There are workshops avaliable to help you on them. Presentations may seem scary, but it's a great thing to do, builds confidence, makes you attractive to employers etc.
Any more questions, just ask.
