Course summary

Our PhD French Studies programme will enable you to carry out a significant piece of in-depth research in an area of interest. French Studies at Manchester is home to a thriving community of postgraduate researchers who conduct research across the broad spectrum of French and Francophone Studies. They form part of our wider network of specialists whose research spans a diverse range of areas, from early modern theatre, animal studies, and colonial literature to popular music and contemporary cinema. The professional careers open to students who have taken a PhD in French vary widely. Some continue their studies to post-doctoral level in academic posts, while others opt for careers in primary or secondary education, in commerce or in administration at the local or national level.

The PhD is the major postgraduate research degree. It involves three years of full-time study or six years of part-time study and the preparation of a thesis of not more than 80,000 words that makes a significant contribution to knowledge. A satisfactory PhD topic is one that a suitably qualified and properly supervised student can bring to completion within the permitted timeframe. Your research will normally be supervised by two members of staff at the University. Your supervisors will most likely be members of the School of Arts, Languages and Cultures, but if your research requires it, we may arrange for supervision by someone outside the School.
