Course content

The University of Edinburgh is home to one of the largest communities of medieval and Renaissance specialists in the world. With more than 70 staff actively pursuing research in this field, we can offer you outstanding opportunities for postgraduate study.

Several of our subject areas were rated among the best in the UK for world-leading research in the 2008 Research Assessment Exercise.

Thanks to our close connections with many Schools within the College of Arts, Humanities & Social Sciences, through the Centre for Medieval and Renaissance Studies, we are able to provide a cross-disciplinary approach that will add depth to your research and open the door to a broad range of potential project research areas.

Our research interests are wide-ranging and global, and include history, languages and literatures, history of art and architecture, music, divinity, archaeology, law, Celtic and Scottish studies, and Islamic, European, and Asian studies.

Training and support

You will benefit from regular seminars and discussions, including the Centre for Medieval and Renaissance Studies research seminar, and the Late Antiquity and Medieval seminar, which is organised by postgraduates themselves.

You will have access to training in palaeography and codicology, in theoretical approaches to medieval society and culture and sources of medieval history.


Throughout your research you can call upon the outstanding collections of the University, the National Library of Scotland, the Scottish National Archives and the National Museums and Galleries of Scotland, all of which are within an easy walk of the the School's base on George Square.
