Postgraduate opportunities

Our programmes offer unique insights into the medieval world and the richness and variety of human experience.

During your studies, our expert academics will guide you through the latest developments in the discipline from the end of the ancient world to the new millennium. You will encounter a wide range of subjects and approaches to medieval studies while having the opportunity to develop your own specialisms. You will join a vibrant academic community and work in a truly interdisciplinary research environment, engaging with medievalists in several departments across the University.

Continuing your studies with us will provide the opportunity to be involved in our research seminar series and you will also be invited to our conferences and events. As part of our active community, you will have access to a dedicated postgraduate room, where our master's and doctoral students work collaboratively to share ideas and further enhance their work.
