Studying at the Warburg Institute

Studying at the Warburg Institute means having access to scholars and Fellows of the highest calibre in professional and research terms. Contact hours and consultation with academic staff is one of the most favourable to be found in any academic institution. There is also the advantage of access to the Warburg Library, one of the world's finest, as well as the Photographic Collection and Warburg Institute Archive.
Full-time study for the PhD degree entails three or a maximum of four years' independent research, culminating in the writing of a thesis of not more than 100,000 words. Part-time students complete the same programme in five, or a maximum of six years. After submission of the thesis, the student attends an oral examination conducted by an internal examiner, from the University of London, and an external examiner, normally from another British university

The tradition drawn on by the Institute includes the work of such distinguished scholars as Warburg himself, Fritz Saxl, Ernst Cassirer, Raymond Klibansky, P. O. Kristeller, Arnaldo Momigliano, E. H. Gombrich, D. P. Walker, Frances A. Yates, Charles B. Schmitt and Michael Baxandall. It has been a tradition of new departures achieved primarily by working across the boundaries of established disciplines.
