The MA does not offer systematic instruction in the facts of history. Instead, the emphasis is on independent research, while the final thesis must be an independent work, it is the supervisor who offers advice on refining the topic (if necessary), on primary sources, on secondary reading, on research techniques and on writing the final text Supervisors and students meet frequently throughout the year, and not less than twice a term, and the supervisor is always the student's primary contact for academic advice and support. The course consists of a number of classes on research techniques followed by a series of research seminars delivered by guest speakers.
1st or 2nd Class Honours degree, or relevant experience; applicants whose 1st language is not English require IELTS 6.5 (with 6.0 or above in each component).
