Open days for prospective students

2014 graduate studies open day

Our next Open Day takes place on Wednesday 26 November 2014.

Please come along to find out more about our taught Master's (MSc) or research (PhD and MPhil) programmes in the history of science, technology and medicine and the medical humanities. We will also be introducing our new taught Master's programme in science communication, which combines a theoretical grounding with contemporary professional insights and experience.

Presentations by CHSTM staff will cover course structures and content, the application process, and career opportunities, including progression from taught study to PhD. Current and former graduate students will also be on hand to answer your questions.

The presentations will be held from 2 till 4pm in Room 2.57 Simon Building, Brunswick Street, Manchester (see Maps and travel). There is no need to book your attendance in advance, but please let us know you will be attending so that we can estimate numbers.

We also hope to run tours from 1pm (to be confirmed), and many staff will also be available for individual meetings by prior appointment throughout the day: see our staff pages for contact details.

To register attendance or for any enquiries about the Open Day, or about our taught Masters programmes, please contact Dr James Sumner.
For advance queries about PhD and MPhil research, please contact Dr Jeff Hughes.
