Course Summary

European Studies is an interdisciplinary programme which considers Europe in terms of its politics, history, literature, film, culture and thought. As part of the Centre for Multidisciplinary and Intercultural Inquiry, it draws on the expertise of members of staff in the Faculties of Arts and Humanities, Social and Historical Sciences, and the School of Slavonic and Eastern European Studies (SSEES). Students can specialise in any area of European Studies for which there is a suitable supervisor. We have a high level of expertise in the fields of modern European history, thought, literature, and film.

As a multi-faculty institution in the heart of cosmopolitan London, covering an exceptionally wide range of disciplines, UCL offers an ideal environment for research in the broad subject areas covered by European Studies. Research students have a primary and second supervisor from different disciplines, so studying at UCL provides an opportunity to take full advantage of these interdisciplinary strengths. Many of our graduates go on to pursue academic careers and recently our students have taken up positions at UCL, Oxford and King’s College London amongst others. Others are working for non-governmental organisations or in the arts.

Entry requirements

Students need to have a UK Master's degree in a relevant discipline, or an overseas qualification of an equivalent standard. In some cases high marks within a first-class Bachelor's degree may be acceptable. In the first instance, candidates should establish a dialogue with a potential supervisor before making a formal application. Admission is normally dependent on the submission of a detailed research project proposal.
