Course summary

COURSE OVERVIEW

A PhD in Welsh enables you to undertake a substantial project rooted in your own passions and interests.

It leads to a highly respected qualification which can present a pathway to a career in academia, or widen your scope for employment in fields such as education, government bodies or the private sector.

The PhD takes three years full-time or six years part-time and the MPhil takes two years full-time or four years part-time.

The Research Excellence Framework 2014 adjudged that 100% of the Welsh Department's research work was of a world-class standard or better, and that 69% of the work submitted was of international standard or world-leading. This is the best result among Welsh departments that presented their work individually to the research survey.

You will be closely supervised by two experienced academics with relevant expertise throughout the course of the project. This takes the form of fortnightly meetings in your first term and meetings at regular agreed intervals thereafter.

You will develop and hone research skills needed for high-level work in any field of Welsh, while skills and training programmes available on campus provide further support. You will have the opportunity to deliver presentations to research students and staff at departmental seminars, and at the College of Arts and Humanities Postgraduate conference.

You may also have the chance to teach undergraduate tutorials and seminars from the second year, for which you receive training and payment. Financial support is also provided (subject to approval) for attending conferences or conducting research away from Swansea.
