What will I learn?

Research overview

The subject-matter of your research is of course chosen by you, although we will give you advice and guidance in formulating an appropriate research proposal. Please feel free to contact staff directly if you have any questions as to the viability of your research ideas.

Research culture

As well as forming a close relationship with your supervisor, who will have the expertise appropriate to your chosen area of study, you will be a valued part of our research culture, attending workshops where research papers are presented, and with opportunities to hear eminent scholars such as those who give the Hamlyn and Lasok Lectures.

We hold regular Presentation Days where students can develop their ideas and presentation skills; School staff and other postgraduates attend and contribute. We organise ‘mini-vivas’ annually.

Entry requirements

For students from United States

Students need to hold a relevant Bachelors degree with a grade equivalent to a UK Upper Second-class honours (2:1). We consider applications on a case-by-case basis, but typically we equate a GPA of 3.2 or above in a US first degree as comparable to a UK Upper Second-class.

For international students

Normally students will have a good undergraduate Honours degree (UK Upper Second Class Honours or equivalent) and a Masters degree with a dissertation component. If you are seeking funding through one of the Research Councils (UK/EU students only), you will need to hold a minimum Upper Second Class Honours degree, although often these awards are won by those with First Class Honours due to high levels of competition. As part of your application you will need to be able to prove that you have the research skills, vision and motivation to make your research project a success. Overall score 7.0 with a minimum score of 6.5 in the writing component and all other sections no less than 6.0. Overall score 100 with minimum scores of 25 for writing, 21 for listening, 22 for reading and 23 for speaking.

*There may be different IELTS requirements depending on your chosen course.
