    Exeter or Sheffield. Exeter would be my preference. I'd have applied there if it wasn't so far from Notts.

    In terms of history department - Exeter's very good for history of medicine and naval history; Birmingham's good for pretty much everything covered on a BA in History and York's fantastic for Medieval history and some 18th cen stuff.

    Sheffield and Leeds would be on a par. Sheffield's good for Fascism related things and tbh I don't know enough about Leeds.

    Guess it all depends on what you want to study for 3 years as History's a very personal subject.

    What would you say was the best for more modern history modules?

    I would say York. It has a really good history course (well, I really liked their history, anyway). When I went to the open day they were the only university I visited which actually listed all the different topics in their courses you can do and they were really diverse topics.

    I really like the place too. It's really historical and beautiful. When I was walking around, there were people doing 'ghost' tours down alleyways. :o:

    You can find module lists on most department sites. I know you can for Sheffield and York anyway as I looked at both of those myself. I'm sure you probably can for the others. Look at those and see which you like best.

    Sheffield or Birmingham from my own experiences. Define modern though

    There's the course structure with information for all of the optional modules from each department's website. This stuff's easy to find if you look for it.
