Course content

We welcome application for research degrees at three levels: MA, MPhil and PhD.

Our diversity of research interests means we will consider thesis proposals in any field of literature from the Middle Ages to the present day, including literatures in languages other than English.

About research degrees

The length and duration of the programme depends on the level, as follows:
-MA: up to 30,000 words over one year (two years part-time)
-MPhil: up to 50,000 words over two years (four years part-time)
-PhD: up to 80,000 words over three years (six years part-time)

It is sometimes possible for MA by research students to transfer to a MPhil (and subsequently to a PhD) at the end of their MA year without having to make a new application. Such a transfer would be done without having the MA conferred, and your MA dissertation may be used as the basis for part of the thesis. The MA year will be counted as the first year of the MPhil/PhD.

Research training

Whichever course you choose, you will also receive training in research methods and skills appropriate to the stage they have reached and the nature of their work. This includes:
-Guidance on planning and writing your thesis
-Using bibliographic and archival resources (both electronic and printed)
-Handling research data
-Making conference presentations
-Preparing and submitting material for publication
-Applying for jobs

Introductory classes in computing and word processing, various modern languages, palaeography, bibliography, and classical and medieval Latin are also available.
