About

French at The University of Edinburgh is a doctorate-level study with an opportunity to expand upon your interests and expertise in a community that really values research; and to make an original, positive contribution to learning in French and Francophone Studies. We specialise in the language, literatures and cultures of France and the many countries around the world in which French is spoken.

Overview

Language, to us, is inseparable from culture. As such, we encourage you to think broadly and explore the implications of language in a wider perspective. Join our community and undertake a specialised research project under the guidance of experienced and well-published supervisors.

Working with colleagues elsewhere in the School of Literatures, Languages and Cultures, and across the wider University, we are able to support PhD theses crossing boundaries between disciplines and/or languages.

Over the course of your PhD French at The University of Edinburgh, you’ll be expected to complete an original body of work under the expert guidance of your supervisors leading to a dissertation of between 70,000 and 100,000 words. You will be awarded your doctorate if your thesis is judged to be of an appropriate standard, and your research makes a definite contribution to knowledge.

Based in the Main University Library, the Centre for Research Collections is unique in the UK, bringing together a collection of more than 400,000 rare books, six kilometres of archives and manuscripts, and the University’s collections of art, historical musical instruments and other objects.
