The Institute of Modern Languages Research (formerly the Institute of Germanic & Romance Studies) is a research institution associated with the University of London. A member of the School of Advanced Study, its focus is to promote and facilitate the study of the cultures of German-speaking and Romance language countries across a range of disciplines in the humanities.

The Institute of Germanic & Romance Studies was established in 2004 with the merger of the two Institutes of Germanic Studies and Romance Studies, founded in 1950 and 1989 respectively. It assumed its current name in 2013.

The Institute currently offers two postgraduate degrees: MA in Cultural Memory[1] and MRes in Modern Languages.[2]

Research degrees are offered in the fields of Germanic & Romance Studies (French, German, Italian, Spanish and Portuguese studies, Literature and Cultural Studies) and Comparative and Interdisciplinary studies (The City-especially Berlin or Trieste, The virtual or imagined city, Borders, The body, Psychoanalysis, German philosophy and history of ideas, Women's writing, Jewish writing, Exile writing, Children's literature and Feminism).

Several research institutes are affiliated with the institute, including the Centre for the Study of Cultural Memory, the Centre for the Study of Contemporary Women's Writing, the Ingeborg Bachmann Centre for Austrian Literature and the Research Centre for German and Austrian Exile Studies.
