The UCL History department, which dates back to 1830, is consistently ranked as one of the best in the world for the quality of both its research and teaching, and our rewarding programmes make it an exciting place to study over 5000 years of history, across every continent, from the ancient Middle East to the twenty-first century.
We take pride in being elite but not elitist, and are committed to nurturing talent, irrespective of students' backgrounds, and to maintaining a learning environment in which students are both supported and stretched in order to both make the transition into higher education and achieve their full potential.

Many congratulations to Dr Maria Ángeles Martín Romera, of Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität Munich, who has been successful in her bid for a European Commission Marie Skłodowska-Curie Individual Fellowship, to fund a period as a research fellow at UCL History. Dr Romera will join the department in September 2018 to work for two years with Dr John Sabapathy on a project entitled 'Surveilling Communities: Public office holders and popular control in Southern Europe (13th-15th centuries)', focusing on Castile, southern France, and Siena.

Senior Lecturers John Sabapathy and Antonio Sennis were pleased to learn in January that their consortium, led by Dr Catherine Keen of SELCS, has been successful in its application to UCL's Rome Regional Partnership fund. There was a good deal of competition for this funding, which has been awarded to ten groups from across UCL and comes as part of a wider move within the university to develop new and existing links with specific regions across the EU.
