Course summary

Most of our PhD students come here to work on their thesis with leading scholars in their fields, but we are also committed to helping you develop your future career. CLAS provides specialized in-house training on a range of topics, including:

  • teaching undergraduates
  • publishing in Latin American studies
  • improving your academic writing
  • applying for academic posts

CLAS's own training provision is complemented and augmented by a very wide range of skills training sessions offered by the University, which include research skills, IT, personal development, communication skills and careers advice. Bursaries are available for those wishing to take language courses, and CLAS is currently able to offer specialist in-house training in Brazilian Portuguese. Whatever your future aspirations, you will be encouraged, if you wish, to take the opportunity to gain valuable teaching experience during your time here, in the form of small group supervisions and/or lectures.
