Course summary

The School of Archaeology and Ancient History offers supervision for the degrees of: Doctor of Philosophy (PhD) - full-time and part-time; Master of Philosophy (MPhil) - full-time and part-time. These degrees are available to study on campus and the PhD is available by distance learning.

PhD description

PhD students complete an independent research project under the guidance of a supervisory team. The research is normally completed over a maximum period of 3.0-3.5 years (full-time) or 6.0-6.5 years (part-time).

A fourth year (full-time) or seventh year (part-time) or the remaining part of this can be used to prepare the thesis for examination. The thesis should not normally exceed 80,000 words and must make an original contribution to knowledge and contain work of publishable quality. The thesis must then be defended in a viva voce (oral) examination before a degree can be awarded.

The PhD in Archaeology and Ancient History can be completed either as campus based study here at Leicester or by distance learning.
