Throughout the year our students organise informal peer review seminars where students have the opportunity to present their research proposal, fieldwork plans, chapter ideas, etc. This provides a friendly forum in which students can exchange ideas about theoretical and practical aspects of their work with others who are going through or have recently gone through the same process. CAS students have also been involved in the organisation of substantial research workshops, raising the funding themselves from organisations such as the ESRC and Royal African Society.
Always verify the dates on the programme website.
We host a thriving and cosmopolitan community of research students in the Centre of African Studies (CAS). We offer a Ph.D. programme with an international reputation, awarded from one of the world's leading universities. We welcome applications and enquiries from prospective students with a keen interest in conducting research that engages with and extends our knowledge of Africa.
