Teaching and learning

The way you learn is about to take a major leap forward

You’ll be taught in a variety of ways, through a combination of lectures, seminars and tutorials alongside assigned reading. Our tutors also use film, visits to archives, libraries and museums, and other types of field trips to bring modules to life. This is best exemplified by our programme in Venice, which uses the city, its geography, and its art and architecture in our teaching.

Research-led teaching

History at Warwick has a formidable reputation. Much of this is due to our acclaimed academics – we’re outstanding historians in our fields, and we’ll be the ones you’ll learn alongside.

“The Warwick history staff are academically brilliant and absolutely lovely. Teaching wise, it is not uncommon to be reading a book and seeing your lecturer’s name as a reference. You can really tell you are learning from top academics in their field, and that what you are learning is the cutting edge of research."

- George, Warwick History graduate
