The Department of History, Politics and War Studies offers a vibrant and stimulating environment for MPhil/PhD students. The department, which includes the Centre for Historical Research, has a well-established and proven track record of research and dissemination. Staff publish their work widely and aim to bring their research to a wider community. Our MPhil/PhD students play a key role in our research community and we aim to support your development into researchers, academics or whatever career you aspire to.
The Department prides itself on the levels of support provided to postgraduate research students in the course of their MPhil/PhD journey. Our academics are committed to their subject areas and meet regularly with their supervisees to work closely with them at all stages of the project, from inception to completion.
Postgraduate research students are encouraged to present their research to University academics and fellow PhD students through hosting research seminars. Again, this is an area where our supportive and knowledgeable PhD supervisors are happy to support and advise where needed.
Our postgraduate research students are afforded the opportunity to develop their research skills through participation in training events organised by the Faculty of Social Sciences and the University’s Doctoral College.
