‘Making History’: History Summer School

‘Making History’ is a week-long residential summer school that will allow you to experience life as a first-year undergraduate here at UCL. We will help you draw on the rich historical resources afforded by our London environment to work on a project designed to encourage creative thinking about the past. We’ll also introduce you to some new kinds of historical sources, and new ways of thinking about the work that historians do in reconstructing the past. You’ll hear great lectures from experts on a variety of historical topics and work closely with some of our finest historians to put together a group presentation and a personal research diary. We anticipate making offers of undergraduate places on the basis of work conducted over the course of the week.

This summer school will run at the same time as the “Vision: Mind, Knowledge, Art and Politics” Philosophy summer school, and so participants on both summer schools will attend the same evening activities. Trips will include a visit up the Shard and a visit to a West End Performance - this will all be free of charge.
