The studentship covers full fees at the UK/EU rate (£6,240) for the 2017/2018 academic year. Overseas students are welcome to apply. The studentship is valid for full-time or part-time study.
The MA/MRes in the History of the Book provides students with an understanding of book history from 3000 BCE to 2000 CE through two core modules (‘The Medieval Book’ and ‘The Printed Text in Britain’) and four optional modules, such as ‘The Book in the Ancient World’, ‘The Medieval Book’, ‘Provenance in Books’, ‘Hand Press Printing’ and ‘The Digital Book’. Centred in the heart of London, the programme makes use of the excellent resources available in such institutions as Senate House Library, the St Bride Library, the Wellcome Library and the Victoria & Albert Museum. Alumni establish careers in librarianship, curatorship, publishing and the rare book trade, or proceed to MPhil/PhD study.
We are also able to place students who wish to undertake an internship with an established London book trading firm as part of the programme. This is a unique opportunity to discover a thriving side of the book industry dealing with rare books, manuscripts, maps, prints and first editions.
