The School of Advanced Study (SAS) is the UK's national centre for the support and promotion of research in the humanities. Located at the heart of the University of London in Bloomsbury, SAS provides an unrivalled scholarly community in which to pursue postgraduate study and research. 

Our graduates are awarded a University of London degree.

Our students benefit from our collaborative research environment and opportunities to participate in our extensive programme of events, research training, and networks.
