During your research, you will have the opportunity to work closely with a supervisor who is a specialist in your research area. In addition to your supervisor, you will normally also be able to draw on the help and support of one other lecturer, who will form part of your supervisory team. You might reasonably expect to see your supervisor fortnightly or at least three times per term.
In addition to providing specialist supervision, the Faculty runs a programme of professional training for the benefit of all research students.
The German programme from University of Cambridge includes seminars and workshops on library resources, giving conference papers, publishing, applications and interviews, teaching skills, specialist linguistics training, and film-making.
The School of Arts and Humanities runs a central programme covering a range of topics from PhD skills training, to language training and writing and editing skills. If you wish, you are likely to be given the opportunity of gaining experience in small group teaching from Colleges. There may also be opportunities to gain some experience in language teaching and lecturing in the Faculty.
- Thesis / Dissertation
- Annual progress interviews constitute a system for the formal monitoring by the Degree Committee of the progress of all students working towards a PhD. Termly progress interviews take place in the fourth year of the PhD.
- Postgraduate students are admitted in the first instance for a probationary period during which they are not registered as a candidate for the PhD degree.
- The first-year interview is the context in which registration as a candidate for the PhD is formally considered. Satisfactory progress is a condition for being registered as a doctoral student and for remaining on the register.
