About

The Spanish and Portuguese Section from The University of Cambridge, offers undergraduate and postgraduate teaching in Portuguese. It is unique in its commitment to exploring the trans-historical and cross-cultural interrelations between all these language areas and their corresponding cultural formations.

Overview

 The completion of the PhD thesis is 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. During your research, you will have the opportunity to work closely with a supervisor who is a specialist in your research area.

 You might reasonably expect to see your supervisor fortnightly or at least three times per term. In addition to your supervisor, you will normally also be able to draw on the help and support of other members of the Section with expertise in your field of study.

Learning Outcomes

By the end of the  Portuguese programme from The University of Cambridge, candidates will have acquired excellent skills, experience and knowledge to undertake postdoctoral work (research and teaching) or another related profession.
