The Centre for Nineteenth-Century Studies fosters a lively postgraduate community at both Master’s and PhD level. We are closely connected with Birkbeck’s MA Victorian Studies, London’s biggest and longest-standing Victorian period master’s programme, which is run by the Department of English, Theatre and Creative Writing at Birkbeck.
Birkbeck is also home to a brilliant community of research students conducting doctoral work on nineteenth-century topics. Our Centre offers opportunities for research students to participate in a huge range of research activities, including conference and seminar organising, internships, journal editing, and digital humanities projects.
See our PhD homepage for more information on applications, teaching opportunities, funding & scholarships and research resources. If you are interested in applying for a PhD in nineteenth-century studies, please see our staff member profiles for potential supervisors.
