Museum Studies at Leicester

Over the past 50 years, we have acquired a global reputation for leading-edge thinking and experimental practice in museum studies.

Researchers, practitioners and postgraduate students come together to think creatively and critically about museums, galleries and heritage.

The University’s research is ranked 30 in the UK in the Research Excellence Framework 2021, according to analysis by Times Higher Education.
