The history course at Kent is really good if you want to pick which parts of history to study. In the first year you only have 1 compulsory module, but apart from that you can choose whatever you want to study. Wild modules are also an option, which is great if like me you wanted to start learning a new language. In terms of workload you don't get many contact hours a week, it's generally around the 10 hour mark depending on how many modules you have in the term. Obviously there is a lot of work to do in your free time, you'll have to make notes on chapters for the following week for all of your modules, and some also require you to make a group presentation. In your first year most modules will require 2 essays around 2,000 words, so definitely try to choose the same amount of modules for the autumn and spring term. Otherwise you could have 3 essays all due in the same week. In terms of content and feedback that all depends on which module it is and who is teaching it, bit they're generally all of a high standard.
