Submitting your application
You are strongly encouraged to contact the ResM History programme leader (Dr James Gregory) to discuss the proposed research before you apply.
Application is by project proposal and evidence that you are prepared to successfully complete this project. Your proposal must provide a suitable basis for a dissertation of 25,000 words. Your proposal should be 2,500 words maximum: setting out the scope, aims and schedule for carrying out the project (including bibliography of primary and secondary sources set out in appropriate scholarly format) and should conform to the MHRA style guidelines (Style Guide is free to download as an Adobe Acrobate PDF file from www.mhra.org.uk).
This material will be used to determine both your aptitude for the programme and the suitability of your proposed project, as well as the availability of an appropriate supervisor. We will also consider the ability of the department to support your research project with resources appropriate to your needs.
Please attach your project proposal to your application form as a separate document.
All applicants will be interviewed, either in person or by Skype/telephone, prior to being accepted onto the ResM History programme.
