The School of Language and Literature offers study facilities for postgraduate degrees by instruction and research. If you opt for a degree by research, you will need to give us some idea of your area of interest in the form of a 300 word research outline. If that sounds daunting, it may be worth communicating (by letter, email or phone) with the members of staff whose research interests correspond to yours, and discussing your research interests. This can lead to a much sharper sense of purpose.

All applications require two references. These should be from two academics familiar with your work. It can speed up the processing of your application if you get your referees to write directly to the postgraduate officer (address supplied below).

There is no closing date for applications but early applications are encouraged.

Applications for funding from the Arts and Humanities Research Council are made through the University and must be submitted to the School by 1 April and by the School to the AHRC by 1 May.

Candidates from outside the UK should take note of funding deadlines relevant to their own circumstances.
