Course summary

MPhil/PhD English

We offer a rich and warm postgraduate culture in English and creative writing at the University of Plymouth, based in fellowship and scholarly interaction with the other departments in the Faculty, especially history and the history of art. We offer full or part-time PhD and ResM independent study supervision.

English and creative writing staff have published widely, and the subject had outstanding results in the last Research Assessment Exercise (over 70% was ranked at 3* or 4*, internationally excellent and/or world leading, making our outputs per staff amongst the best in the UK).

This full time or part time doctoral programme is suitable for people who have a particular research question or topic in mind, and wish to explore this through independent study in order to produce an original contribution to the subject. If you aspire to a research career this is the most appropriate research degree to undertake.
