This is what our students say

Our own students know better than anyone why the History study programme is a good choice. Below you can read why they chose this programme and what makes it so unique.

It is not only the basic knowledge of the past or historical facts that have been fascinating me, but particularly the skill to connect the dots to a greater picture.
