Distinctive features

  • Our Research in Progress seminar series provides students with the opportunity to present papers in a non-intimidating environment. The series is designed to be preparatory to presenting papers at conferences, and also plays a vital role in the dissemination of subject-specific skills.
  • We play a leading role in language-based area studies within the Wales Doctoral Training Partnership, funded by the Economic and Social Research Council (ESRC).
  • All research students are entitled to call upon a personal allocation of funds which may be spent on legitimate research related activities.
