TESTIMONIAL - The biggest factor that pushed me to study at the School of History at Queen Mary University London was the huge variety of modules available to choose from. It meant that I had a chance to explore areas of history that I had not yet had a chance to or even knew existed. Anita Doda, BA History (2023)
