Research degrees in History

The History Department offers excellent provision for students at PhD level. Each student is supported by at least two supervisors who will meet with you regularly and provide guidance on your research. Postgraduate students also participate in a lively research culture and contribute to regular seminar programmes, conferences and workshops held in Milton Keynes, London and other Open University centres.
