Course summary

Hispanic Studies is a small, vibrant and dynamic research unit with strong connections to institutions in the USA, Latin America, Spain and Portugal.


Postgraduate students have the opportunity to participate in a wide range of activities through the Graduate School of Arts and Humanities and will join the diverse and lively postgraduate community within the School of Modern Languages and Cultures. This affords the opportunity for interdisciplinary work under joint supervision. Many of our postgraduate students in the past have come from Chile, Europe, USA, Brazil, and Mexico and we warmly welcome applications from international students.
