I completed my history degree at Birmingham last year and loved it, I always found the department was really enthusiastic and supportive but as ageshallnot said above its best to pick a uni based on the modules and areas you are interested in, or interested in exploring.

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!

Hiya! I'm currently in my final year studying history at Birmingham, so I can certainly assist you with your question. I personally have had a really positive experience with Birmingham’s history department. In your first year at Birmingham you are exposed to such a wide range of historical periods through many of your compulsory modules, which is so useful in helping you to figure out what your preferred area of history is. This might seem a bit daunting as you will most likely be exposed to a lot of history that you have never studied before and some that you have never even considered studying. However, being able to explore different historical periods is instrumental in establishing your niche as a historian. After this, in your second and third year, you have a lot more choice regarding what your degree looks like, allowing you to have the freedom to choose modules that fit you preferred area of history.

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
