Additional information

We particularly welcome applications from students from backgrounds that are historically under-represented in higher education, and are committed to supporting those communities that often have been marginalised. Potential applicants are requested in the first instance to contact their preferred PhD supervisor and Prof. Andrew Morrison (CAHAE PGR director) with an outline of their academic background and proposed area of research within Latin (broadly construed).
