"I am now in the second year of my PhD, and am confident that my History MA helped me secure a place in the Russian department, take advantage of funding opportunities and make an assured start on a new career path."

"The discipline of History, and especially my time on the MA course, prepared me well for a career in marketing."

"My current role requires me to use the communicative skills and analytical skills I developed during my MA course."

"Being able to say that I worked at a 16th century heritage site really helped me stand out to potential employers."
