Bloomsbury houses institutions recognised internationally for excellent research in archaeological and heritage disciplines and proven excellence at teaching and fostering research in the subjects. Students can approach this funded pathway through 6 training routes, depending on the nature of their research interests and training needs: Archaeological Practice, Cultural Heritage Studies, Heritage Studies, Public Archaeology, Heritage Science and Sustainable Heritage. Students can undertake study either part-time, or full-time, and can enter the doctoral programme either via a 1-year Masters or directly into a PhD. Each of these routes builds on the concentration of academic resources between partnering institutions, including the Institute of Archaeology, Institute for Sustainable Heritage, Raphael Samuel History Centre, and partnerships with the British Museum and Museum of London. Students will carry out cutting-edge research through our active archaeological and heritage field projects both in the UK and across the globe, and will develop their skills through teaching provision across our programme in central London. Interested students should approach relevant possible supervisors at any of our partner institutions to discuss their proposed research projects in the first instance; alternatively, interested students should contact a representative within the relevant department: Birkbeck: Dr Jen Baird (j.baird@bbk.ac.uk); UCL, Institute of Archaeology: Dr Alice Stevenson (alice.stevenson@ucl.ac.uk); UCL, Centre for Sustainable Heritage: Dr Kalliopi Fouseki (kalliopi.fouseki@ucl.ac.uk); UEL, Prof. Toby Butler (t.butler@uel.ac.uk).
