Course content

The Master of Research programme is available only as a one-year full-time course. It is a challenging post-graduate introduction to theories, methods and knowledges in the humanities and cultural studies. Students will combine coursework and research throughout, culminating in the production of a dissertation. The Master of Research may be taken as a stand-alone degree in its own right, or may act as a pathway into the Consortium PhD programme.

Fees and funding

Home students are eligible for AHRC awards, and overseas students are eligible for ORS awards as well as Birkbeck International Research Studentships. In addition, two London Consortium fees-only bursaries are awarded annually.
