About

During your research on the Italian programme from The University of Cambridge, you will have the opportunity to work closely with a Supervisor who is a specialist in your research area. 

Overview

In British universities the PhD (Doctorate of Philosophy) is traditionally awarded solely on the basis of a thesis, a substantial piece of writing in English which reports original research into a closely defined area of enquiry. The completion of the PhD thesis generally expected to take three to four years, and most funding is based on this assumption. It's also possible to take a part-time route through research degrees, and the expected timeframe would be five years.

On the Italian programme from The University of Cambridge, you will normally also be able to draw on the help and support of one further academic advisor and to consult other academics working in related fields.  You might reasonably expect to see your supervisor fortnightly or at least three times per term.

Features

The programme 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 in the Faculty.

Programme Structure

Assessment
  • 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.
  •  The first-year interview is the context in which registration as a candidate for the PhD is formally considered.
