Postgraduate Study Area

An inspirational place for postgraduate study

A major venue for seminars, public lectures, conferences and debates

The Humanities Research Centre is a beautifully designed space of shared belonging for academics and postgraduates from across York's eight arts and humanities departments. Its vibrant community life provides a stimulating and supportive base for postgraduate study, arts and humanities events and international conferences.  

Welcome

The University of York has invested more in the arts and humanities in the past decade than any other English university, and the Humanities Research Centre sits at the heart of that investment, providing a spectacular place of interdisciplinary belonging for arts and humanities academics and postgraduates.

But the Humanities Research Centre is much more than a building: it’s a dynamic and inclusive community of those committed to the pursuit of research excellence.
