Course summary

We are able to offer supervision for research in a wide range of periods, subject and themes within the field of Russian and Slavonic Studies.

Research overview

As a PhD research student of Russian and Slavonic Studies you will benefit from not only our excellent supervision, but also our interdisciplinary links with other institutions through our partnership with the Centre for Russian, Central and East European Studies (CRCEES), which is funded by AHRC, ESRC, HEFCE and SHEFCE and spearheaded from Glasgow. CRCEES also awards studentships at all postgraduate levels and runs an annual Research Forum and Summer School especially for the postgraduates of its member institutions.

We also have strong links with academic institutions in Russia, Slovenia, Serbia and Croatia, which our students are able to utilise along with further travel opportunities which exist through the Universitas 21 programme.

At the end of three years’ full-time registration, plus one year optional writing-up, you will have written a thesis of between 80,000-100,000 words, in English or Russian, on a topic which makes a significant contribution to research in Russian and Slavonic Studies.
