University of York

Conservation Studies

Research seminars are run within the Department and at the Centres for Medieval Studies and 18th Century Studies, and in the Department of Biology. Numerous special interest research groups also hold meetings and conferences at King's Manor, and this allows research students to keep in touch with latest developments in their field. The graduate study building provides room for reading and quiet reflection. The building has been designed to provide an attractive yet effective atmosphere for study and writing; it also creates an environment which brings together postgraduate researchers in a friendly and communal way.

Entry requirements
