The highlight of the course is getting to work closely with manuscripts from the John Rylands Library. Everything was virtual in 2020-2021, but even then, the John Rylands had a fantastic digital set-up that meant we still got to see manuscripts in real-time, with a librarian handling them for us.Catrin Haberfield / Student MA Medieval and Early Modern Studies

How your application is considered
Applications are mainly considered on the basis of an assessment of past and predicted academic achievements, the academic reference(s) and any other supplementary evidence that supports the application. Once we have an application that is ready for a decision, the admissions tutor (often the Programme Director) will relay the decision to the admissions team, who will send you this decision.
Please note that your application is usually received by the School 24 to 48 hours after the time you submit it. If you have not provided documentation that allows the admissions tutor to make a decision, we will contact you.
