Nodweddion unigryw

  • We encourage our PhD students to gain teaching experience, however applicants are asked to note that the allocation of teaching is dependent on which modules are running at an Undergraduate or Postgraduate level and may not be available to everyone.
  • Our Research in Progress seminar series provides students with the opportunity to present papers in a non-intimidating environment. The series is designed to be preparatory to presenting papers at conferences, and also plays a vital role in the dissemination of subject-specific skills.
  • We play a leading role in language-based area studies within the newly established Wales Doctoral Training Centre, funded by the Economic and Social Research Council (ESRC).
  • All research students are entitled to call upon a personal allocation of funds which may be spent on legitimate research related activities.

The normal requirement for admission to all Research programmes in the School is a 2:1 (upper second class) degree award, or the overseas equivalent, in a relevant subject. Further guidance on entry requirements is available on each programme page.

However, we consider all individual applicants on their specific merits. If you do not have the standard qualifications for the course you may still apply and your application will be considered. Interviews may be conducted to identify and assess the academic merit of prospective students.

Applicants may be requested to submit their Masters dissertation or other appropriate research writing for review. Applicants may be interviewed.

Full-time students are expected to devote at least 39 hours per week for 46 weeks a year to their PhD work (part-time 21 hours per week). Research students will need to produce and submit a thesis which will be examined by an oral examination.

Non-native speakers of English are expected to have a recognised English-language qualification (e.g. IELTS with a total score of 7 and no subsection below 6.5), as the minimum requirement to be invited to interview. Written and oral competence in English might also be tested at interview.

Applicants are also required to submit a Research Proposal (word limit/suggested length: 2,000-3,000 words).
