The Institute for Medieval Studies

We are one of the major centres for Medieval Studies in the UK and recently celebrated our 50th anniversary. We offer interdisciplinary teaching at postgraduate level with both masters and PhD courses. We also offer discovery modules for undergraduate students with an interest in the medieval period.

We are part of the School of History and we are a multidisciplinary Institute with academic staff from a range of subject areas across the Faculty of Arts, Humanities and Cultures.

The Institute for Medieval Studies is actively working to build a diverse and inclusive community that supports all staff and students. Our Equality and Inclusion Lead is Dr John Gallagher.
