UCL is in an ideal location five minutes away from the best concentration of resources for historical research in Europe: the British Library, the Institutes of Historical Research and Classical Studies, the Warburg Institute and the UCL Institute of the Americas. Scholars visit UCL from all over the world and engage with students and staff at seminars, workshops and conferences. Many postgraduate students take advantage of the plethora of networking opportunities available and are often involved in hosting events. We offer individual research supervision from world-leading historians and a commitment to individual attention for all students, with dedicated tutoring and small-group teaching. The department has a high success rate in securing studentships and we offer opportunities for paid teaching experience.
