St Andrews and Bonn joint PhD in History
The University of St Andrews and Rheinische Friedrich-Wilhelms-Universität Bonn have established an agreement to allow PhD candidates to undertake research leading to joint doctoral degrees in Medieval History or Modern History.
The aim of the joint PhD agreement is to train high-profile international researchers, allowing them to benefit from the diversity of expertise and culture of two highly regarded Schools of History.
The School of History at St Andrews has an international reputation for the diversity and excellence of its research. Historians at St Andrews study all period from late antiquity, through medieval and early modern, to late modernity.
The School’s researchers are interested in the formal institutions that shape human life in these spheres, and in the practices and experiences of people working and living within their influence. Researchers explore transnational and cross-cultural encounters, and the ways that knowledge, people, goods and beliefs move through time and place
The School has a long-established international reputation for research excellence. 80% of the School's research output in the 2014 Research Excellence Framework (REF) was judged to be in the highest two categories of ‘world-leading’ and ‘internationally excellent’.
