Course content

In the research Assessment Exercise (2008) several of the areas contributing to the PhD in Medieval Studies were rated among the best in the UK for their world-leading research; all were rated very highly for the international significance of their research.

Because of its connections to many schools of the College of Humanities and Social Science, applications are particularly invited for cross-discipline and interdisciplinary topics within the PhD in Medieval Studies.
