So yesterday I went to the University of Hull open day and I absolutely loved it!
If you didn't know already, I am hoping to do a History degree and then after going into teaching or journalism.
The University has 2 courses which I would love to do; History (as a single Honor's) and History with Social History. I really love the fact they offer so much choice and flexibility and have such a diverse range of topics - which is important for me as I don't feel I can decide on one specific era or period of time.
Another thing is that they also have a good reputation for languages. I am hoping, wherever I end up studying, to carry on learning German and maybe re-learn French or even pick up a new language.
I also loved that the grades they require from you are achievable (most of the History courses I looked at were AAA or AAB - which is just not going to happen) and also that they look at you as a person and not just the 3 letters you produce.
So fingers crossed eh?
Are any of you applying to University this year? Any tips from those who have been through the application process and survived?
