Course summary

The Department of Film Studies maintains a vibrant and comprehensive research programme in global film cultures, with staff expertise ranging from early cinema to digital media to transnational film.

The PhD programme offers three years of supervision on your own research project, culminating in a dissertation thesis. An additional continuation year with supervision is available in year four if needed.

  • participating in and running specifically designed workshops, symposia, and study days
  • organising an annual postgraduate research conference
  • editing and contributing to Frames Cinema Journal
  • teaching experience in tutorials and guest lectures for subhonours courses
  • publishing scholarship (book reviews, articles, edited collections)
  • applying for grants.
