University of Cambridge
The course covers all historical areas in which the faculty has significant teaching capacity but does not offer a specific thematic MPhil. It is important to stress, however, that the MPhil in historical studies is a self-contained course leading to an MPhil degree, and not simply a stepping stone on the road to the PhD for those students who decide to continue their graduate work. The faculty also regards the course as an ideal precursor to registration for the PhD degree in cases where students wish to continue in advanced level research.
Applicants should have a 1st class degree or a high upper 2nd degree from a UK university with a minimum average in the final year of 67 percent; or the equivalent from a university outside the UK. Candidates will normally be expected to have taken a substantial number of history courses at university level and to have a sound background in the period covered by the course.
The teaching is conducted primarily by means of one-to-one supervisions with a relevant specialist in the faculty; there are also workshops, seminars, and library tours available to students across a range of fields.
Assessment is based on essays and a 20000-30000 word dissertation.
