Graduate Admissions

The ASNC Department offers a 9-month research-preparation MPhil course and a three-year PhD. It has a lively graduate community with students pursuing research topics in all areas covered by the teaching and research interests of the Department, covering early medieval languages and literatures (Old English, Old Norse, Medieval Welsh, Medieval Irish, Insular Latin), the history of a comparable range of geographical areas (Anglo-Saxon England, Scandinavia, Ireland, Wales, Brittany, and Scotland), as well palaeography.

In the 2014 Research Excellence Framework (REF), the Department, assessed jointly with the Department of Modern and Medieval Languages (MML), was rated in the highest terms. Within the Modern Languages and Linguistics Unit of Assessment, ASNC and MML were ranked top among Departments teaching both languages and literatures nationally.
