Applications and Funding

Information on applying, entry requirements and funding can be found here.

 

The requirement for admission to any graduate course is a good honours degree in French or Modern Languages. The standard normally required is that of a first class or high 2.1 degree, or its equivalent. It is also expected that all candidates for a PhD will have achieved a distinction in a masters degree by the time they begin the doctorate.

Applicants for the PhD will be called for interview by members of the Department in the Lent (Spring) Term of the year in which they wish to begin their studies. The interview will seek to establish the suitability of the candidate in relation to our resources and specialist interests.

Prospective applicants should consult our graduate webpages for information on entry requirement, application deadlines, fees, funding opportunities, and further information relating to graduate study in MML.

Prospective applicants for part-time research degrees should contact Martin Crowley for advice before applying; further details of University policy on part-time research degrees may be found here.
