More about Fiona

"I heard about the course from the UCAS website and the University prospectus, and when I saw the range of modules in different topics, not just World War II, I was hooked and decided to apply.

"I didn’t attend an open event before applying but did visit once I received my offer to make sure that it was the place I wanted to spend three years studying at. When I saw the campus, the city, and spoke to lecturers about what we would study I knew it was the University for me.

"The support of the teaching staff is fantastic whether it is about assignments or personal issues they are always there for you to talk to. What’s great is that they are available to help you in a range of ways such as contact time as well as being available to contact via the email system.

"Topics range from modules on Public History and Heritage to Nazi Germany, via Medieval Europe, The Crusades and Victorian Britain to those dealing with the background to History and the ideas of historiography to aid your research for your dissertation.

"Practical equipment on offer for this course include access to books, journals and database resources both within the library and outside for you to use at home. When it comes to your second and third years you have the extended resource of being able to access other university libraries in the country for research and also book access to aid your degree.

"With this degree we learn a lot of practical skills such as those analytical skills that will help us in our future careers. This course also offers lots of transferable skills that can be used in a wide variety of jobs making the chance of gaining a job after graduation that one step easier.

"My aim has always been to become a Primary School Teacher. At Nottingham Trent University you get the opportunity to take part in University run schemes to work directly in schools or work on school visits with young people and it has only reaffirmed my career aims."
