History: Before, During & Beyond … History With Dr Arddun Arwyn, Dr Louisa Taylor & Laura Hill From Aberystwyth University
July 7 @ 17:00 - 18:00
We are delighted to present the Before, During and Beyond … series from Aberystwyth University in which each event focuses on a particular subject area to introduce the decisions that need to be made before choosing a degree course, the study period itself and how University alumni have succeeded beyond studying the course.
Before, During & Beyond … History
Why study History at Aber? Why not!
This session will cover everything applicants will need to know about the advantages of studying History and of studying History at Aberystwyth. Learn about the fascinating courses we offer from the Norman Conquest through to the modern day, from the history of Berlin to Beijing and our ‘hands on’ skills-based approach to study.
During the session the structure of the course will be explained, and attendees will be introduced to our most popular modules. Employers value graduates with history degrees for their critical-thinking skills and ability to analyse, research, fact-check and communicate persuasively. History is a perfect for degree for many career paths and provides graduates with confidence and initiative.
There will be lots of opportunities to ask questions and to find out about the decisions the university alumna has made also.
The format is accessible, friendly, informative and participative.
