The School of English at Nottingham is renowned internationally for its research expertise across the subject and hosts some thriving Research Centres. Our PhD in English covers a wide range of literature in English, reflecting the diversity, strength, and depth of the school and its work.
A PhD in the School of English will comprise mainly independent study, with supervision meetings spread throughout the year. There are no taught credits attached to a PhD, although it is compulsory for full-time students to attend the Arts Faculty Researcher Skills training programme. Some PhD students also choose to audit masters modules taught by their supervisors where appropriate, however, this is not compulsory, and would not involve any formal assessment.
