A number of our institutes offer master's degree programmes in their specialist subject areas, including art history, book history, history and historical research, human rights, Latin American studies, law, and modern languages.

Our students benefit from:

  • A friendly and supportive postgraduate-focused environment
  • Access to world-leading research resources
  • Opportunities to participate in the School's extensive programme of academic events and research activities
  • Proximity to a wide range of cultural resources within or near the University of London's Bloomsbury campus in central London
  • The prestige and worldwide recognition of a University of London degree


The School of Advanced Study is a unique environment in which to study the humanities.  The School strives to reflect the latest developments in thinking across the humanities disciplines it supports and to ensure that its programmes reflect this.   We are also aware that the needs of our students are constantly changing.  With that in mind, the School continually reviews the its programmes and, as part of that process, reserves the right to alter or discontinue them. 

We assure you that we carry out these exercises at no detriment to any enrolled students. Students enrolled on any programme that we discontinue will be able to complete that programme within a reasonable timeframe and with all the necessary resources at their disposal. The School will communicate any anticipated changes with students as early as possible.
