The School of History at the University of Kent offers a great environment in which to research and study. Situated in a beautiful cathedral city with its own dynamic history, the University is within easy reach of the main London archives and is convenient for travelling to mainland Europe.
The School of History is a lively, research-led department where postgraduate students are given the opportunity to work alongside academics recognised as experts in their respective fields. The School was placed second nationally for ‘world-class’ research in themost recent Research Assessment Exercise, and consistently scores highly in the National Student Survey.
The British Cartoon Archive was established in 1973 at the University of Kent, to collect and preserve British cartoons of social and political comment, and make them freely available for study. It is a library, archive, gallery and registered museum, dedicated to the history of British cartooning over the last 200 years. CartoonHub, an online cartoon database shared with a number of other institutions, is also the world’s largest electronic archive of cartoons, with a catalogued database of over 120,000 images, the majority of which are stored in original in the Centre. It is therefore an excellent resource for research students, capable of supporting a range of different research interests and specialities
