History and Archaeology

Studying for an MPhil or PhD is very much an individual activity, and research topics vary widely, according to personal interests; the University helps the student to nurture their interests and develop skills and insights essential to their future progress; students are assisted by access to modern, well-equipped laboratories and library facilities, and are also supported in developing their research proposals; although research may be conducted within any of the University's academic departments, the University also maintains a number of distinctive specialist research centres to support and enhance the student's study options.

Entry requirements

Minimum upper 2nd Class Honours degree in a discipline appropriate to their intended area of research; substantial prior research experience may, in some instances, be acceptable in place of a 1st degree qualification; if the student is not sure whether this might apply to them, they need to contact the Graduate School who will be able to advise them; international students must provide evidence of English proficiency at the time of application.
