Postgraduate Training Scheme

Study with us

Our postgraduate opportunities include a number of Master's and PhD programmes.

Postgraduate study

A PhD or Masters from the Wilberforce Institute is more than a qualification. Our students’ research and study help inform policies and practices around emancipation issues. Their work drives the agenda to help tackle modern-day slavery.

The work of our students informs the policies and practices of government and the museum and education sectors, as they undertake life-changing research on issues relating to historical and contemporary slavery.

PhD clusters

Our current PhD clusters are focusing on the consequences of slavery for individuals today and how children can fall through the net of protections that have been designed to prevent their exploitation.
