School of History

Graduation

We asked our class of 2019 to reflect on their time in the School of History and on graduation day itself. Here is a selection of what they had to say...

Seeing everyone that I started my journey at QMUL with brought me to tears! Saying goodbye to somewhere that had been my home for three years was extremely hard but it also filled me with joy knowing how much happy memories I had made there.
— Lakkaya Palmer, BA History, 2019
Excellent culture, great friends and amazing freedom of module choices. Ask for help when you need it, there's plenty available.
— Simon Butt, BA History, 2019
I know I’ve made life-long friendships here. The teachers have also been amazing. I’ve received an immeasurable amount of support, and I think the fact that I actually enjoyed the process of writing my dissertation speaks volumes about the types of teachers QM has.
— Thahmina Begum Thaniya , BA History and Politics, 2019
Embrace as many opportunities that come your way as possible: if you don't take them you'll never know what the outcome could be, either way, and they'll be a big part in shaping your degree.
— Nancy Slater, BA History, 2019
It was a special way to end what has been an unforgettable three years, and to look back on it all with the people I started my journey with.
— Fatima Moosa, BA History, 2019
