Research degrees

As the UK's national humanities research hub, we offer a unique scholarly community in which to pursue doctoral research.
 

Our research students can take advantage of a varied and challenging research training programme, with general research skills training and research methodologies courses provided through the School and subject-specific training provided within the institutes.

The School is a member of the AHRC-funded London Arts and Humanities Partnership (LAHP) ) together with King's College London and UCL. The 2016 competition for fully-funded studentships will open in December 2015.
