History Summer School

The study of history is about a lot more than facts and dates. Questions of the possibility of historical truth, the methodology of its pursuit and the political responsibilities of historians to both the past and the future are central to the craft of the historian. This course offers the chance to explore these and other historiographical questions using some fascinating (and sometimes weird and wonderful) case studies.

The Debate Chamber History Summer School will be of particular benefit to those students who are considering the study of History, or a closely related subject, at University. This intensive course will be conducted through seminars, lectures and informal discussions, in order to create a sense of what studying history at undergraduate level is like. The topics covered have been specifically selected to challenge and broaden the historical outlook of participants and as such the course requires no specific background knowledge and is open to all students aged 15-18. The most important qualification is a strong enthusiasm for history!

I enjoyed every minute of this summer school and would recommend it to anyone who has a passion for history! Also, I was able to learn about parts of history which I had never encountered before. The variety of topics and the fantastic tutors definitely made the course worthwhile
