About

The Slavonic Studies programme offered at The University of Cambridge, includes seminars and workshops on library resources, giving conference papers, publishing, applications and interviews, and teaching skills. 

Overview

The School of Arts and Humanities runs a central programme covering a range of skills relevant to doctoral students. Doctoral students may also be offered opportunities to do small-group teaching for the undergraduate Colleges and, in some cases, language teaching for the Faculty.

Features

In British universities, the PhD (Doctorate of Philosophy) is traditionally awarded solely on the basis of a thesis, a substantial piece of writing which reports original research into a closely defined area of enquiry. 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, for which the expected timeframe would be five years.

During your research in the Slavonic Studies programme offered at The University of Cambridge, 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.

Programme Structure

Assessment
  • Thesis / Dissertation
  • The thesis should represent a significant contribution to learning through the discovery of new knowledge or through the connection of previously unrelated facts, or the development of new theory, revision of older views or some combination of these. In writing the thesis you are expected to take account of previously published work on the subject and the thesis should be clearly and accurately written, paying due attention to English style and grammar. 
  • Candidates for the PhD in Cambridge are guided by a supervisor, though they will normally also discuss their work with a number of other experts in their field.
