Course summary

Within our top-rated, internationally acclaimed department, some of the very best postgraduate research students in Archaeology are able to develop themselves and their careers.

Our research, teaching and reputation are world-class: we are regularly ranked one of the top two Archaeology departments in the UK (e.g. Research Excellence Framework (REF) 2014, The Guardian University Guide 2018, Complete University Guide 2018) and one of the top four globally (World University QS rankings 2020) and have an impressive spectrum of research expertise, especially in British, European, Middle Eastern and South Asian archaeology, and in the science based and theoretical areas of the discipline.

MPhil: Following two years of full-time or four years of part-time research and writing, you will produce a thesis of up to 60,000 words. The research topic for such a thesis is usually based on an area or period of study, or the study of a specific class or group of objects, and this qualification can be upgraded to a PhD if your topic is suitable and you demonstrate an aptitude for original research.
