We encourage our PhD students to gain teaching experience, however applicants are asked to note that the allocation of teaching is dependent on which modules are running at an Undergraduate or Postgraduate level and may not be available to everyone.
Our Research in Progress seminar series provides students with the opportunity to present papers in a non-intimidating environment. The series is designed to be preparatory to presenting papers at conferences, and also plays a vital role in the dissemination of subject-specific skills.
We play a leading role in language-based area studies within the Wales Doctoral Training Partnership, funded by the Economic and Social Research Council (ESRC).
All research students are entitled to call upon a personal allocation of funds which may be spent on legitimate research related activities.
