University of York
Students studying toward the PhD in Medieval Studies work on research projects that span or blur traditional disciplinary boundaries, and are supervised jointly by staff specialising in two different subject areas.
Subject areas include archaeology, art and architectural history, history (social, economic, political, cultural, ecclesiastical, intellectual and gender) and literature (including old and middle English, old norse, Latin, Italian, French), Viking studies, codicology and palaeography. Tuition can be offered in medieval languages (medieval Latin, old English, old French, old norse).
Applicants require a UK 2.1 or international equivalent in a relevant subject.
Students convene research groups where they share their research in the company of teaching staff and fellow students, they participate in the regular research seminars, and frequently attend talks given by visiting speakers. Besides supervisions, research groups and seminars, research students have frequent and informal contact with members of staff and fellow students to discuss areas of mutual interest.
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.
