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.

Underpinning the School’s national mission to support and promote high-quality research in the humanities 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.
