Course Summary

PhD

Our PhD programme is aimed at students who have already completed a Master’s degree in History or a related field.

The PhD requires a dissertation of up to 90,000 words, to be submitted by full-time students after a period of three years' study (or six years for part-time students), with a further one year allowable for writing up.

PhD by Distance Learning

The PhD by Distance Learning requires a dissertation of up to 90,000 words, to be submitted by full-time students after a period of three years' study (or six years for part-time students), with a further one year allowable for writing up. Students on this programme are required to attend a 5-day induction programme at the beginning of their first year and to visit York in their second and third years (or every other year for part-time students).

Research support

Alongside regular meetings with their supervisor, all research students have a Thesis Advisory Panel (TAP), consisting of at least one member of staff in addition to the supervisor, which meets twice a year and oversees more general professional development and career training.

Additionally, all students receive introductions to the University Library, the Borthwick Institute, and other libraries, archives and research facilities in York and elsewhere.
