Programme description

Our MPhil French Studies programme will enable you to undertake original research in one of a wide range of areas.

French Studies at Manchester is home to a thriving community of postgraduate researchers, who conduct research across the broad spectrum of French and Francophone Studies.

They form part of our wider network of specialists, whose research spans a diverse range of areas, from early modern theatre, animal studies, and colonial literature to popular music and contemporary cinema.

Our staff have also secured major research grants, including AHRC funding for 'Queer Cinema from Spain and France: The Translation of Desire and the Formation of Transnational Queer Identities' (2012-15) and previously for 'Post-Colonial Negotiations: Visualising the Franco-Algerian Relationship in the Post-War Period' (with Durham University).

Our research culture is further enhanced by our annual programme of research seminars, comprising visiting speakers and researcher-led workshops.

We provide a supportive and welcoming forum for all our postgraduates, fostering the knowledge and equipping them with the skills needed to ensure success within their chosen research field.

Fees

For entry in the academic year beginning September 2019, the tuition fees are as follows:

  • MPhil (full-time)
    UK/EU students (per annum): £4,327
    International students (per annum): £18,500
  • MPhil (part-time)
    UK/EU students (per annum): £2,163

Please note for the majority of projects where experimentation requires further resource: higher fee bands (where quoted) will be charged rather than the base rate for supervision, administration and computational costs. The fees quoted above will be fully inclusive and, therefore, you will not be required to pay any additional bench fees or administration costs.

All fees for entry will be subject to yearly review and incremental rises per annum are also likely over the duration of the course for UK/EU students (fees are typically fixed for International students, for the course duration at the year of entry). For general fees information please visit: postgraduate fees . Always contact the department if you are unsure which fee applies to your project.
