UCL's Department of Scandinavian Studies is the largest independent department of its kind in the UK, and hosts a number of internationally recognised scholars. UCL's research library in Scandinavian Studies is possibly the largest outside of Scandinavia, and the department is home to a thriving postgraduate community that is closely connected to London's vibrant academic and cultural milieu. Whatever your chosen field of research, the department offers excellent opportunities for MPhil and PhD students to expand their skill base, for instance by auditing classes in Scandinavian languages and participating in our internationally renowned research seminars.
