The Centre for the History of Science, Technology and Medicine (CHSTM) at the University of Manchester, UK, will be holding its annual Graduate Studies Open Day on Wednesday 12 February 2014.

Please come along to find out more about our taught Masters (MSc) or research (PhD and MPhil) programmes in the history of science, technology and medicine, science communication, and the medical humanities. 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 travel information at <>). 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. Many staff will also be available for individual meetings by prior appointment throughout the day: see our staff pages at <> for contact details.

For advance queries about PhD and MPhil research, please contact Dr Jeff Hughes: [email protected]

CHSTM is one of the world’s leading centres for the histories of science, technology and medicine and their relations with wider society. We have a lively postgraduate community of Masters and PhD students, and an outstanding 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 have recently announced two £5000 bursaries towards tuition costs for MSc students seeking to proceed to PhD study. This scheme is offered for full- or part-time students starting in September 2014; the deadline for applications is Monday 31 March 2014.
