Course content

Students can specialise in any area of European Studies for which there is a suitable supervisor. We have a high level of expertise in the fields of modern European history, thought, literature, and film.

As a multi-faculty institution in the heart of cosmopolitan London, covering an exceptionally wide range of disciplines, UCL offers an ideal environment for research in the broad subject areas covered by European Studies. Research students have a primary and second supervisor from different disciplines, so studying at UCL provides an opportunity to take full advantage of these interdisciplinary strengths. Students are supported by a dynamic research culture, a stimulating environment and excellent opportunities for research training. UCL runs numerous seminar series and guest lectures, and researchers have access to world-class libraries, including those at UCL itself, the British Library, and the School of Advanced Study.
