The School unites nine internationally renowned research institutes at the University of London to form the UK's national centre for the support and promotion of research in the humanities and social sciences.

Underpinning the School’s national mission to support and promote high-quality research in the humanities and social sciences is the research and scholarship undertaken by its academic staff. The process of undertaking challenging research in order to extend the boundaries of knowledge across disciplines and in collaboration with researchers from around the world is critical to the School’s function as an innovative space for advanced study and its commitment to the highest standards of scholarship.

Fellowship applications open

All SAS member institutes welcome proposals from suitably qualified applicants for the Newton International Fellowships scheme. These enable early-stage postdoctoral researchers from any country outside UK to work at UK research institutions with the aim of fostering long-term international collaborations.

The Newton International Fellowships scheme is run by The British Academy and the Royal Society. The long-term aim of the scheme is to build a global pool of research leaders and encourage long-term international collaboration with the UK.
