The Centre for the History of Science, Technology and Medicine (CHSTM), University of Manchester, will be hosting an open day for prospective postgraduate students (taught and research) on Wednesday 7 March.

Founded in 1986, CHSTM is one of the largest research centres in the UK dedicated to the historical study of science, technology and medicine and their relationships with society. Our MSc teaching programme (one year full-time) leads to a broad qualification in History of Science, Technology and Medicine or to tailored awards in History of Science and Technology, History of Medicine, or Science Communication. We are also able to offer ESRC 1+3 quota awards, providing fees and full bursaries for qualifying UK/EU students for both MSc and PhD study.
