So I know there was one for this upcoming year, but I thought I'd create a thread for next years ancient history students! How many of us are there? And where do you plan on applying? For me, I'm planning on Nottingham, Bristol, Newcastle and Cardiff. I'm still unsure of my fifth choice.

I'll be applying for my MA this fall. I'm mainly looking at Durham and Bristol but might also apply to Exeter.

Woo! Thanks for replying to my other thread too! I love the sound of Durham. It seems like my kind of place. But I doubt I would get in, even though I'm international and these universities love money. Haha.

Why don't you apply? Honestly, my undergrad was in a completely different subject and from a lower ranked University and I'm still applying. Durham has an amazing international community, and great facilities for History .

I should. I love how old the university is. And the modules sound fantastic. It's definitely my kind of place.

You bet! It's the modules on the MA that took me away. Great for research and for getting world experts on a specific subject.

I would say so. Haha. But that just means you'll have a more unique background.

I've applied for ancient history, either with egyptology (Liverpool), archaeology (warwick and Exeter), medieval history (royal holloway) or just on its own (KCL).

ive had offers from Liverpool and warwick (both ABB), and I'm having an interview (a pretty informal one I think) at royal holloway at some point in the near future, I haven't been given a date yet.

Thanks! I'm not sure yet, warwicks probably the best uni I've applied for, but I haven't actually been there yet. I loved Liverpool and the course sounds really interesting, but it's not as good a uni.

Reading, Swansea (twice, one single AH and one joint with Egyptology), MMU and Manchester. Really nervous, because I didn't do History at A-Level. Hopefully it won't matter too much. Regular history is all politics anyway!

Anyone else got an offer from Reading? I was set on Swansea before, but now I'm wondering if I should go for Reading or not.

I got an unconditional from Birmingham but as track didn't update properly it let me put an insurance down. My head of sixth advised me to use it so I chose Cardiff. What's yours?
