It entirely depends what you define 'best' to be. There are rankings, but these change yearly, and these can be quite big changes. Decide what you want out of a university. Campus or city? How far from home do you want to be? What sort of period of history are you interested in? Take a look at the modules they offer, but bare in mind that this will change as staff with certain specialisms leave and new staff with new specialisms enter. Every history degree will offer modules in some basic topics, like the crusades, witch hunts, the reformation, the world wars etc, but some may offer more niche topics or place more of an emphasis on a certain time period or geographical area. SOAS, for example, if you are interested in Africa, Asia and the Middle East. Also, look at your grades in comparison to the entry requirements. Since you have 5 choices, it's alright to have some over your predicted grades, but its a good idea to have a range, including some under for an insurance choice.Last edited by oswalds; 23-07-2017 at 18:29.
