About

The History programme from University of Liverpool provides a personalised and focused introduction to postgraduate research allowing you to develop as an independent researcher with the support of an expert in History.  

Visit the official programme website for more information

Overview

It provides a rigorous overview of the current state of scholarship in your selected field, guides you, through a programme of directed, individualised reading, to the selection of a feasible research project, and allows you to complete a substantial piece of research.

By pursuing our MRes programme you’ll gain the skills and knowledge you need to carry out further research towards a PhD.

Throughout your MRes programme you will be supervised by a research-active expert in the field who will bring their knowledge of, and passion for, their subject to your one-to-one supervision sessions.

This History programme from University of Liverpool is only suitable for those applicants with an excellent academic track record and who have an extremely well developed research proposal that has already been discussed and approved by their prospective supervisor(s).

General requirements

MRes pathways have a greater research element than MSc programmes for students who wish to progress to a career in research and as such a good first degree (2:1 Hons or equivalent) in History or a closely related subject is required. Students who have completed an MRes often progress to a PhD degree.
