Subject Experts for history groups

Our expert accompanied study tours are hugely popular with History groups, with thousands of students taking an accompanied trip with us each year. All of our Subject Experts are professional academics, historians and writers, with incomparable knowledge of their subject area and an ability to communicate their learning in a way that will enlighten and stimulate your students.

What will your Subject Expert do for you? 

When you book an NST study tour, we will select a Subject Expert from our specialist team to meet your exact visit requirements. Whilst on tour, your Subject Expert will be with you to provide both local knowledge and educational support – helping you to get the most from your time outside of the classroom. 

Specialist knowledge 

Our Subject Experts are former teachers with detailed knowledge of the current curriculum, meaning they are well-equipped to help meet your specific learning needs and understand the demands of organising a school tour, especially overseas. 

NST History Subject Experts are available in many of our destinations and are experts in a variety of topics such as 20th Century History, Irish History, Third Reich to the End of the Cold War, The Holocaust, Nazism, WWI and WWII. 

Help preparing your ideal itinerary 

Your Subject Expert will contact you before your tour to discuss your learning objectives and build an itinerary that matches your requirements, enabling your group to get the most out of everyday. 

More time for one-to-one teaching 

With an NST Subject Expert leading the group, you will be able to provide individual tuition and enjoy the visits with your students. They'll liase with your coach driver, organise and navigate public transport, liaise with visits, restaurants and suggest suitable lunch stops, souvenir shopping, parking and pick up points.

First evening talk 

Your Subject Expert will hold an informal discussion on your first evening, setting the scene for upcoming visits and focusing your students on the days to come. 

An opportunity to view WWI artefacts 

Give your students the opportunity to look at a range of WWI artefacts up close. Our Subject Experts carry a number of items with them that students can handle, giving them an invaluable insight into the history of the battlefields.
