Postgraduate courses

Our postgraduate programmes cover a broad range of topics focused on our research specialisms.

You can choose to study on either a taught Master's or a research programme. A research Master's degree is studied over one year full-time while a PhD involves extended study over three or four years. All our postgraduate programmes can also be studied part-time.

PhD funding opportunities

If you are starting a PhD in autumn 2020, there are two principal opportunities for full scholarship funding. The School of History will be awarding Vice Chancellor's Research Scholarships and CHASE (AHRC) PhD Studentships.
