MHRA Referencing

MHRA Referencing & Cite Them Right

Undergraduate and MPhil students in the Faculty of Achitecture & History of Art prefer to use the  MHRA referencing style. This is a numeric style where numbers are used to denote citations and in your writing these numbers refer to a footnote, which lists the full reference. The Faculty advises consistency for whichever referencing style you choose. 

For more advice on referencing please feel free to get in touch with us.
