Postgraduate taught courses

Find out about from Jonathan Phillips and Anna Whitelock about the postgraduate programmes we offer; what we look for in an applicant; the facilities and research expertise available to our students; and the kinds of careers our graduates go on to.






The Department

The History Department has a large and lively community of postgraduates, many of them part-time. With more than 30 full-time members of staff, we offer an exceptional variety of expertise and high quality of research. The Department also benefits from the University of London libraries and seminar programmes, and from proximity to the National Archives at Kew and the British Library in central London. Royal Holloway's masters courses are taught either on the Egham campus or at the College's central London teaching site, 11 Bedford Square.

Our courses


As part of the TECHNE consortium, we offer Research Preparation Master's Scholarships. Please note that these studentships are only for masters students intending to go on to further study at PhD level, and that they are extremely competitive.


For information and advice about how to apply for one of our MA programmes, please consult the College's online application service, Royal Holloway Direct.
