English at Dundee is strongly research orientated, and a full 90% of our research publications between 2001 and 2007 were rated as of international excellence in terms of their 'originality, significance and rigour'. 45% of our research output was rated in the two very highest categories of 'international excellence'.
- PhD (Doctorate) by Supervised Research
This is a three year degree full-time or four years part-time. It is examined by a thesis of 80,000 - 100,000 words, on a topic of your choice (providing we have the staff expertise and resources).
AHRC funding for PhDs now requires that you take a taught Masters degree first.
- MPhil (Master's Degree) by Supervised Research
This is a two year degree full-time or up to four years part-time. It is examined by a thesis of around 40,000 words, on a topic of your choice (providing we have the staff expertise and resources to supervise it).
AHRC (Arts & Humanities Research Council) funded doctoral studentship places are available in the School of Humanities. This is a fantastic opportunity to have your PhD tuition fees paid (UK & EU students) plus receive a yearly maintenance grant (UK students only). Applications are invited from new and current students (in first year of study if full-time or up to second year if part-time).
Full details available from the AHRC studentship webpage.
