About

This Poetry - Text, Practice as Research  programme from University of Kent enables promising poets to develop the potential of poetry as a tool of inquiry within the humanities. 

Overview

In this Poetry - Text, Practice as Research  programme from University of Kent you will produce a volume of poetry as well as a piece of scholarly research of 30-40,000 words. 

Given its emphasis on poetic practice as research into the possibilities and potential for contemporary poetry, the programme integrates with the aims and objectives of the Centre for Modern Poetry allowing for joint supervision between the two centres. 

Cross-faculty work on modern poetry with colleagues in the School of European Culture and Languages is also encouraged. The programme acknowledges the fact that poetry has historically understood itself as an art, consciously informed by research.

The School of English has a strong international reputation and global perspective, apparent both in the background of its staff and in the diversity of our teaching and research interests.

Careers 

Many career paths can benefit from the writing and analytical skills that you develop as a postgraduate student in the School of English. The students have gone on to work in academia, journalism, broadcasting and media, publishing, writing and teaching; as well as more general areas such as banking, marketing analysis and project management.

Programme Structure

Study support
  • You meet regularly with your supervisor, and have the opportunity to take part in informal reading groups and research seminars to which students, staff and visiting speakers contribute papers.  
  • You also benefit from a series of research skills seminars that run in the spring term, which gives you a chance to share the research expertise of staff and postdoctoral members of the department.
  • As a basis for advanced research, you must take the School and Faculty research methods programmes.
