Description

We are happy to supervise MPhil students in any of the areas outlined above. You will normally be supervised by staff members.

We welcome research applications across a wide range of topics. For example, research students have previously investigated: performance indicators in museums; the significance of museums and heritage to the promotion of cultural identity; community museology in Scotland; art and the visually impaired; intellectual and physical access to museums and gallery resources; restitution of cultural property in Korea; and constructions and uses of Welsh identity in American museums.

Current student research topics include: attitudes towards human remains; learning experiences of school pupils in transatlantic slave trade museum activities; the role of authenticity in the on-site interpretation of historic battlefields; heritage and sense of place in the North Pennines; the distribution of rock art in Southern Africa; the social roles and regulation of art museum education in China and Taiwan; community formation in Flickr The Commons; and the management and interpretation of archaeological sites in Turkey.

For more information about staff specialisms please see the Centre's website.

Contents

Our programmes include intensive subject-specific supervision, training in research methodologies and core skills, reading groups and an annual postgraduate conference.

In addition, our Humanities and Social Sciences Graduate School organises a comprehensive training programme for postgraduate students that covers research techniques, professional/key skills and provides support for personal development.

Requirements

An upper-second-class Honours degree and preferably a merit master's degree, or an international equivalent.

Applicants whose first language is not English require IELTS 6.5 (with 6.0 in writing and speaking), Pearson's PTE Academic Test 62 or equivalent.

English Language Requirements

IELTS band: 6.5

IMPORTANT NOTE: Per 6 April 2015 only the English language tests from IELTS and Trinity College London are accepted for Tier 4 Visa applications to the United Kingdom. Other tests (including TOEFL, TOEIC, Pearson, City & Guilds) are no longer accepted for Tier 4 visa applications to the United Kingdom. The university might still accept these tests to admit you to the university, but if you require a Tier 4 visa to enter the UK and begin your degree programme, these tests will not be sufficient to obtain your Visa. Since the Trinity College London language tests must be taken in one of their exam centres in the UK, IELTS is now the only language test accepted for Tier 4 visas to the UK that can be taken worldwide.

The IELTS test is most widely accepted by universities and is also accepted for Tier 4 visas to the UK- learn more.
