We pride ourselves on being a small and friendly department which is able to offer you the supportive environment you need in order to excel on your chosen course.

As well as the large university-wide postgraduate community, as a department we also encourage an active postgraduate community.

We run regular reading groups and social events which both masters and research students are welcome to attend.

We also encourage our students to attend all departmental events, such as conferences and seminars.
