MLitt and PhD

Have you ever wanted to study the Middle Ages at postgraduate level?

SAIMS offers a range of research and taught postgraduate programmes.

In addition to the MLitt in Mediaeval History and MLitt in Mediaeval English, we offer an interdisciplinary MLitt in Mediaeval Studies taught by staff from across the University.

Further information about our taught postgraduate courses can be found on the Study at St Andrews portal.

The SAIMS also provides a unique, internationally-recognised research environment for medieval studies, with potential PhD supervisors from a range of disciplines. For a list of potential supervisors, see our list of our staff and their expertise. Typically, a PhD in Mediaeval Studies has supervisors from more than one school and will take part in SAIMS’s lively research environment, with its seminars, workshops and reading groups. PhD programmes are also available through the individual schools.

If you have an idea for a project, please get in touch with one of our members or contact us at [email protected]
