Other than Peterhouse (that thread scares me!) which colleges in Cambridge are good for History? Is Selwyn?

I'm a first year historian at Cambridge. To be honest, I don't think it matters at all which colleges are 'good' at history. You get the same degree from all of them and practically all the teaching is done outside college anyway.

A factor I would consider though is how close the college is to the history faculty. With a subject like history you are in the library daily getting books out and returning them. So in that respect Selwyn is good as you can't get much closer, although it is a bit out of town. Although obviously whether you like the general feel of the college is important too. Hope that helps x

Agreed. Its not really important what college you go to. Check yourself before you wreck yourself, just try and get in dont bother about a marginal difference between colleges.
