How you learn

Your supervisory team includes a Director of Studies and one or more second supervisors with expertise and interest in your research area. However, much of the work for your degree will be carried out independently, and you will need the initiative, motivation and commitment to succeed. Your supervisors help you to define your research programme, agree any associated training requirements, and provide direction while encouraging you to develop as an independent researcher.

Future careers

A research degree is an essential qualification for academic careers such as teaching history in higher education. You will have the opportunity to develop a range of transferable skills which are applicable in related areas such as museums, archives, libraries, university administration, the media, and beyond.
