Since the MSc History (Online) programme began in 2013 the School of History, Classics and Archaeology has seen 54 students from nine different countries graduate. This year a record number of students completed their studies at Edinburgh – 31 in total! The School was delighted to welcome so many of them to the most recent graduation ceremony and even persuaded some of them into a photograph.

Thanks to state-of-the-art e-learning software and extensive digital resources, the MSc History (Online) programme is delivered entirely online enabling students to manage work, childcare or other personal commitments whilst studying at their own pace. They can develop their own specialised interest under the expert guidance of distinguished academics in the School. 

Congratulations to everyone who graduated!
