Edinburgh Centre for Global History

Postgraduate Research Degrees

The Edinburgh Centre for Global History welcomes enquiries from prospective research students with interests in global history. 

The School of History, Classics and Archaeology offers Masters by Research and Doctoral programmes in History.

The Migration, Slavery and Diaspora Studies hub at the Edinburgh Centre for Global History (ECGH) hosts the William R. McFarlane Scholarship for doctoral research. Applications from candidates engaged in the history of Scottish migration or related diaspora themes are welcome. Although Scottish history is a core concern, the ECGH’s Migration and Diaspora hub, which has developed out of the Scottish Centre for Diaspora Studies, has broad transnational interests and welcomes projects relating to other nations which put the Scottish example in a comparative perspective.
