University of Bristol has opted into the TEF and received a Silver award.
We place particular emphasis on undergraduate research. At Bristol, students ‘do’ history as well as read history through a mix of core units and a choice of primary source-based optional units. You will undertake one substantial piece of independent research each year, culminating in a final-year dissertation. In the first year you will study themes in medieval, early modern and modern history. You will then pursue your own pathway through the degree, choosing from a wide range of thematic and research-oriented units. In recent years topics have included:
- Science and the Supernatural;
- Britain in the 1970s;
- Popular Culture in Early Modern England;
- Sixties America.
The number of student respondents and response rates can be important in interpreting the data. For further information, see the Discover Uni website.
