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.

Careers

  • 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
