Cultural Heritage

The Ironbridge International Institute for Cultural Heritage (IIICH), based at the University of Birmingham, takes a cross-disciplinary approach to the study of heritage. The course offers promising candidates the opportunity to carry out research in all aspects of cultural heritage, heritage management and related areas and welcome ideas for research which are innovative, challenging and which push at the boundaries of the cultural heritage field.

Entry requirements

Our requirements for postgraduate research are dependent on the type of programme you are applying for. For MRes and MA by Research programmes, entry usually requires a good (normally a 2.1 or above) Honours degree, or an equivalent qualification if you were educated outside the UK.
If you are applying for a PhD then you will usually also need to hold a good Master's qualification.

Course modules

Our research degrees require you to prepare a dissertation on a topic of your choice of up to 40,000 words for the MA or 80,000 words for the PhD, under expert supervision.
