On campus with ResM History

You can study the ResM History full time (12-18 months) or choose to take the course part time (24 - 36 months).

You will receive a schedule of on campus attendance requirements prior to beginning the programme, and therefore can use this to make arrangements well in advance that allow you to continue part-time employment during your studies.

As a full-time student you will be expected to attend the following:

  • Key debates and research methods in history module (MAH1700) - once weekly sessions during term one.
  • Research in the arts and humanities module (MARE700) – six workshops, each consisting of a full day of study, spread across term one and term two.
  • An assessed presentation that allows you an opportunity to outline your research.
  • Research seminar series - the history research seminar meets approximately three times a term, usually on Wednesday afternoons.
  • Tutorials with your supervisor - these are to be negotiated as convenient for both of you. Most supervisors will try to schedule your tutorials at times you are on campus for other events. You should be meeting with your supervisor at least every three weeks – and should be in contact in other ways, such as via email, in between.
  • Your viva – where you will present your research. This will take place one to three months after you have submitted your thesis.

You are also welcome to attend (and participate in) seminar series for other research groups such as English and Art History.
