    Hi. I am also looking to do history and applied to both of those unis. personally i would have made Bristol my first choice, but they sadly rejected me. Southampton i think has a better course, you get 4 optional modules in your first year. Its history department is one of its strongest.
    I would have chosen bristol because of the city, its culture, and the presige of the unviersity. but you're question was "which is best for history?" and maybe so'ton edges it.

    I hope thats helpful - btw i am instead having to chose between birmingham & southampton myself (really tough) if you have or anyone else has points for me, thatd be super!

    hi, thanks for your reply. I think I might choose Bristol due to the city and its reputation although, as you said, I think the course at Southampton is better. Plus, I think campus universities seem to have a closer university feel...so I'm still on the fence.

    In terms of your decision, I personally know little about Birmingham, but my friend chose Southampton over it because of the size of the city of Birmingham and the better reputation of Southampton, although I don't know how true that is... (sorry I couldn't be of more help)

    Hi,
    I am also trying to decide which university to pick. Also for history. I'm stuck between Bristol, Birmingham and Southampton!

    It's interesting what's been said about possibly the history department at Bristol not living up to the reputation of the university as I was thinking about choosing it because of it's academic reputation.

    I would appreciate if anyone has any advice!
