On Friday 2 December, the department hosted a webinar for prospective students on The Middle Ages and Us. The discussion ranged from the birth of the nation state to racism in modern media. We also discussed the opportunities of studying in Vienna, including the access to numerous historical sites, and the ease to reaching conferences across Europe and the Near East. The discussion was followed by questions from prospective students about the application process.
In brief, we ask applicants for a statement of intent, working knowledge of the language the sources you intend to use for your research, and proof of English proficiency.
