About the School of History

The School of History at the University of Kent offers a great environment in which to research and study. Based at our Canterbury campus, the School of History is just a half-hour walk from the campus which brings you to the medieval heart of the city and its UNESCO World Heritage sites of Canterbury Cathedral, St Augustine's Abbey and St Martin's Church.  The University is within easy reach of the main London archives . For students of military history in particular, the University's proximity to mainland Europe offers easy access to sites such as the battlefields of the Western Front.

The School of History is a lively, research-led department where postgraduate students are given the opportunity to work alongside academics recognised as experts in their respective fields. The School was placed eighth nationally for research intensity in the most recent Research Excellence Framework, and consistently scores highly in the National Student Survey.

There is a good community spirit within the School, which includes regular postgraduate social meetings, weekly seminars and a comprehensive training programme with the full involvement of the School's academic staff. Thanks to the wide range of teaching and research interests in the School, we can offer equally wide scope for research supervision covering British, European, African and American history

We welcome research applications across the range of expertise within the School. Prospective applicants are warmly invited to get in touch with us to discuss their proposals for doctoral study.
