Course Overview

Our English Masters by Research is a one year independent study programme, which is especially attractive to students who already know they want to study for a PhD and have a clear sense of their research interests.

The MA is an opportunity to ‘pilot’ this research and undertake essential preparatory research methodology training (as required by the Arts and Humanities Research Council). From 2012 – 13, the Department of English and Creative Writing will have two ‘fees only’ 1+3 bursaries to award each year to students planning to follow their MA with a PhD.

Students may choose to pursue an MA by Research in any area of Literary Studies providing a suitable supervisor is available.
