About

The Department of History and Welsh History at Aberystwyth University has a well-established reputation for innovative and internationally recognised research, and is keen to recruit enterprising and imaginative graduate students to read for PhD degrees.

Overview

Why undertake a PhD in History at Aberystwyth University?

  • Aberystwyth boasts research facilities unparalleled at most UK universities and the town’s outstanding resources in books and manuscripts greatly enhance Aberystwyth’s appeal to the historian.
  • Aberystwyth boasts library resources amongst the best in Europe and contains expansive source material for the medieval, early modern and modern periods.
  • Situated next to the university campus is the National Library of Wales, one of the UK’s five copyright libraries. The National Library houses many collections relating to the British Isles in general, and has been since its inception the world's leading repository for archives relating to the history of Wales and beyond, many of them still awaiting exploration.
  • Aberystwyth is also home to a number of research-led institutions that are useful to historians of many periods and interests. These include (besides the National Library), the Centre for Advanced Welsh and Celtic Studies, the Royal Commission on Ancient and Historical Monuments in Wales, and the Ceredigion Record Office.
