A significant number of graduates from the Medieval Studies programme offered by the University of Bristol develop careers as academics in higher education. Others move into academic-related jobs in archives, libraries or academic administration, with many maintaining the capacity to undertake new and innovative research in the field of medieval studies. Some come to medieval studies as mature students in retirement and go on to become independent researchers.
