The School of Modern Languages & Cultures functions as a single unit for research, gathering our eight language areas (Arabic, Chinese, French, German, Hispanic Studies, Italian, Japanese and Russian) and Translation Studies, working within and across these to enable interdisciplinary investigations. Four areas of particular strength characterise our research activities:


  • Medieval & Early Modern Studies
  • Digital, Environmental & Medical Humanities

  • Visual & Performance Studies


We welcome applications for postgraduate study in the School’s Language & Research Focus Areas, especially where there are potential links to relevant Research Institutes and Centres or to our Research Groups.


Our Masters programmes give graduates an excellent chance of success in the competitive graduate labour market. Recent destinations have included:
