Course summary

The Centre for South Asian Studies is the central academic unit in Scotland dedicated to the study of South Asia.

With 25 full-time associated staff in Edinburgh, honorary fellows, and more staff affiliated across Scotland and northern Britain, the Centre is also one of the four leading Centres for South Asian Studies in the UK.

We host a vibrant series of seminars, a cohort of PhD scholars and a range of researchers meaning that there is a culture of academic discussion and exchange.

The Centre brings together South Asian expertise from across the University, to create a lively environment supporting the interdisciplinary study of the subcontinent as a whole.

Training and support

The PhD programme combines work on an individual thesis project with systematic training in research skills offered by the School of Social and Political Science.

The Centre hosts a weekly research seminar as well as regular workshops and conferences.
