The School of History is a vibrant, welcoming and stimulating environment in which to carry out your historical research at doctoral level. We pride ourselves on the high quality of support and supervision delivered by our distinguished academics whose own excellence in research drives their teaching and inspires our sizeable postgraduate community. We nurture an inclusive atmosphere engendered by a research community with a great diversity of interests and approaches.

During your time at the School of History you will have the opportunity to take part in the numerous and lively research forums supported by the school. The Postgraduate Seminar Series is run entirely by and for our research students. The Centre for Renaissance and Early Modern Studies runs a renowned series of seminars with an international cast of speakers, as does the Centre for Eighteenth-Century Studies; the Mile End Institute (MEI) seminar series provides an unparalleled forum for the study of issues in contemporary British history. The new interdisciplinary Centre for the History of the Emotions, offers a rich array of seminars, colloquia and workshops, as well as Studentships. The Raphael Samuel History Centre, a research and outreach centre based in Queen Mary and two other London universities, provides our postgraduates with opportunities for public debate and engagement. Most members of the School are involved in running research seminars at the Institute for Historical Research, an essential part of the postgraduate experience in London. An impressive group of postdoctoral researchers offers inspiration and support to those embarked on their postdoctoral work.

The School of History runs exchange programmes with foreign universities which provide our research students with great opportunities for meeting with postgraduates abroad. We currently operate these programmes with Northwestern University, Freiburg University, and the Universities of Basel and Uppsala.
