This is the Centre for Medieval Studies. The postgraduate program focuses on art, literature, history and architecture from the Middle Ages. York is an outstanding environment for those studies. The centre is a department of the University of York. It is adjacent to King’s Manor, one of two locations where the university began in 1963. The other was in Heslington, a village now hosting the main campus. The highly-rated research school educates almost 17,000 graduate and undergraduate students.
