which university is between for history?Watch
You could take a look at the history department lecturers and professors at each and see what their research interests are - this is what module topics get based on.
Good luck either way!
There is such a huge collective of staff at Birmingham, each of whom specialise in a multitude of disciplines, which means that the breadth of the course is so vast. This drew me to Birmingham instantly as there is so much choice for what you study, so i'd be very surprised if there weren't multiple modules that sparked your interest. Alongside this, the staff themselves create an environment that makes learning so enjoyable. All of them evidently adore their field of study and many of them are leading scholars within their disciplines. So you really do feel like you are being taught by the best of the best.
Ultimately though, it comes down to where your interests lie in History and in which city you think you'd be happiest. I'd recommend having a glance over the module lists on both the Universities course guides to see if you have a preference for study topics.
I wish you all the best of luck wherever you end up and I hope that this was helpful
