University of York
The programme is aimed at individuals who have already completed a Masters degree in history or a related field and wish to gain further qualifications. Applications are invited from candidates wishing to work in all the major areas of interest covered by the department's research expertise. The department has particular geographical strengths in Britain and Ireland, European, The Americas, Asian, Middle East and Africa history and particular interests of individual staff are outlined on the faculty pages, many of which also list recently supervised research topics.
Candidates should normally have, or be expected to obtain, a good Honours degree or its equivalent in an appropriate subject at an undergraduate level. Doctoral candidates are also expected to have completed or be pursuing a Master's course. Applications are welcome from both home and international students who wish to pursue postgraduate study in History.
The MPhil is a research degree in its own right, and requires a dissertation of up to 60,000 words to be submitted by full time students after a period of 2 years' study (by part time students after 4 years). The PhD requires a dissertation of up to 90,000 words, to be submitted by full time students after a period of 3 years' study (or 6 years for part time students), with a further 1 year allowable for writing up.
A range of scholarships and studentships are available at postgraduate level. Some scholarships are funded by the University (such as the York Master's Opportunity Scholarship) and some are funded by Research Councils, alumni, businesses and charities. Please check with the provider for details.
