I am proud to be Head of one of the world's outstanding History Departments: we are ranked No.9 in the UK (Times and Sunday Times Good University Guide 2022) and in the Top 50 globally (QS World University Rankings 2021).
At York, you will encounter innovative yet supportive small-group teaching, led by experts whose work receives international awards and stimulates public debate. Our research was placed third nationally for impact in the Times Higher Education’s ranking of the latest REF results (2021). Our extensive collaborations with partners in our beautiful historic city, as well as nationally and internationally, enables us to offer students and researchers at all levels many exciting opportunities to apply historical thinking in wider contexts.
