Entry to our MPhil/PhD courses is for those who have already demonstrated potential for independent study at MA level (preparation that is now formally recognised by the University's new 1+3 Bursaries). We accept proposals in all literary fields, but are particularly interested in matching students with the expertise in our centres and among our staff.
Students who are accepted are offered excellent support and training, both through regular meetings with their supervisors and dedicated seminars and workshops (at both Departmental and Faculty level).
Entry Requirements: An MA in a relevant discipline and a viable research proposal.
IELTS: 7.0 or equivalent.
Assessment: Original research and thesis.
Funding: All applicants should consult www.lancs.ac.uk/pgfunding/
