Open days for prospective students
2013 open day for prospective postgraduate students: MSc and PhD
The Centre for the History of Science, Technology and Medicine (CHSTM) of the University of Manchester is pleased to announce its Annual Postgraduate Open Day which will take place on Wednesday 6 February 2013, 2pm-4pm, Seminar Room 2.57, 2nd floor, Simon Building, Brunswick Street, Manchester (see Maps and travel).
At the Open Day there are presentations on our Masters and PhD programmes. Topics covered include: the application process; course structure, operation and progression; careers, including opportunities for progression to PhD. The sessions are informal and there will also be a chance to meet current and past graduate students.
CHSTM is one of the world’s leading centres for history of science, technology and medicine and their relations with society, with a growing focus on science communication. We have a lively postgraduate community of Masters and PhD students, and a large and successful group of postdoctoral researchers: our study facilities are among the best in the UK, and we have an excellent track record of progression from Masters to PhD, and from doctoral to postdoctoral study. We pride ourselves on the interdisciplinary nature of our programmes, and cater for students with a science background as well as those arriving with a humanities or social science undergraduate degree. We offer a range of MScs including the History of Science, Technology and Medicine; Medical History and Humanities; and Science Communication. The Masters in Medical History and Humanities is available for UK medical students to intercalate after four years of undergraduate medical education. Our Research Methods in History of Science, Technology and Medicine degree is an approved pathway to apply for ESRC-sponsored PhD study.
