    So I know I'm a few months early to be thinking about this, but I'd like to be able to set myself a goal to work to.
    I like the idea of doing a degree with a year abroad, and at the moment I think I would like to do a history degree. Does anyone have any advice on whether a year abroad is good, and how well it works with history? And if anyone has any stories from own experience I would be very grateful to hear them!
    Also, I know it is quite a rare course so isn't offered at many unis, but I've found it offered at York, UCL, Cardiff, Swansea, Southampton, and Exeter, all of which I am considering, but does anyone know any other unis that offer it? Thanks!
    Edit: I'm also considering Trinity College, Dublin, but that's a bit more difficult because I would not get funding from the government.
