The Faculty of Arts and Humanities offers a diverse range of opportunities for research students interested in pursuing a PhD by research, publication or by practice. We have a strong tradition in innovative and interdisciplinary research in the arts and humanities, and we have excellent opportunities both within and across a wide range of disciplines.
Research students can draw on the expertise of our academic staff, all of whom have national and international reputations in their respective fields. We value the opportunity to work with new research talent and have put in place a supportive environment for you to develop your skills and pursue your specialist field of research.
The Faculty also supports advanced provision in research-led Masters programmes (MRes). These 1- or 2-year full-time or part-time degrees provide a frame for flexible advanced study, leading to the award Master of Research. Find out more about Arts and Humanities MRes programmes.
