In September 2021, History UK commissioned a research study to scope trends and future directions in history provision, and to help build an evidence base that is accessible for historians. The resulting report, Trends in History in UK Higher Education, investigates UK wide trends in university enrolments, with a focus on history undergraduate programmes, and including recruitment and outcomes.
