Research Training

Our discipline-specific, generic and online research training programme draws on the research and teaching expertise of our institutes and the University of London.

We offer well-established discipline-specific research training (most notably in history, law, English, modern languages and music) as well as in specialist areas (palaeography, book history, Renaissance culture, medieval manuscript studies).

Our workshop programme of generic research and transferable skills training provides the transferable and employability skills necessary for wider preparation for careers in academia and elsewhere. These are complemented by research methodologies courses for students in the social science disciplines, and in the software and management information tools required to enable students to complete their research effectively.

Most of our research training is available to postgraduate students and early-career researchers across the UK, much of it free-of-charge. 

We are also a member of the Bloomsbury Postgraduate Skills Network, a shared skills training programme that enables research students in participating institutions to attend training sessions at other member institutions, including UCL, Birkbeck and SOAS.

The School is part of a consortium bidding to the Arts and Humanities Research Council (AHRC) under its Block Grant Partnerships 2 (BGP2) competition for funding for doctoral studentships from 2012.
