The University is committed to achieving excellence in research and scholarship, and to ensuring that the research contributes to the well-being of society. They seek to provide a creative and supportive environment in which ideas are generated and can flourish. The excellence and diversity of their research across the Schools of Arts & Humanities, Humanities & Social Sciences and their role as one of the founder members of the Cambridge Network, means that in addition to their achievements in fundamental research, they are also well-positioned to make significant contributions to the global innovation agenda and, by conveying the implications of their research, to contribute to the formulation of policy.


The Faculty of English makes every attempt to ensure continuity of supervision so that graduate students are able to complete their programmes under the guidance of the supervisor with whom they begin. Nonetheless, periods of academic leave and departures to posts elsewhere are a standard feature of university life and are not always possible to foresee in the medium term. In such cases a change of supervisor may be necessary.The Faculty has also introduced a system whereby each candidate has an advisor in addition to their supervisor, whom they will see once a year for a formal review of progress, and more often, if desired, for informal advice.
