Course summary

The School of English has long-established excellence in Applied Linguistics, and is home to a number of leading experts in the field.

Research overview

The School of English at Nottingham is renowned internationally for its research expertise across the subject, and hosts a number of thriving Research Centres.

A PhD in the School of English will comprise mainly independent study, with supervision meetings spread throughout the year. There are no taught credits attached to a PhD, although it is compulsory for full-time students to attend the Arts Faculty Researcher Skills training programme. Some PhD students also choose to audit masters modules taught by their supervisors where appropriate, however this is not compulsory, and would not involve any formal assessment.

Part-time study

The School of English does not have a formal distance learning provision for PhD study and part-time students are expected to attend some face-to-face meetings in the school during the course of their PhD.

Although most supervision meetings can be held via Skype etc, students are asked to attend the induction sessions during welcome week if possible, and have their first supervision meeting and at least one supervision a year face-to-face with their supervisory team. Part-time students are required to attend/take part in all required research training, attend PG seminars where possible and one PGR symposium over the period of their registration. Wherever possible the final viva examination will be face-to-face.

Careers

The school plays an important part in the career progression of its postgraduates, who benefit from a research and mentoring culture which includes:

  • postgraduate-led research seminar series and annual conference
  • provision of infrastructural support for postgraduate-organised international conferences
  • research networks created by the Research Centres, Institute, and individual research projects
  • research council-funded international research exchange visits with leading universities
  • co-authorship with members of staff
  • interdisciplinary research seminars
  • postgraduate participation in international conferences/seminars
