Our MPhil Portuguese Studies programme will enable you to carry out a piece of original research under the supervision of our academics.
Spanish, Portuguese and Latin American Studies at Manchester plays key roles in national and international research contexts through our publications, seminar and conference activity, and our innovative approach to the configuration of the discipline boundaries in which we work.
Our research and postgraduate teaching ranges chronologically from the Early Modern period in Spain and Latin America up to the present day (for example, with work on the modern city in Latin America, on race and indigenous cultures, contemporary Spanish and Portuguese literature, film and music, and 20th and 21st-century Latin American literature, photography and comics).
Our publications and supervisory interests include cultural and literary history and theory, music, history, and urban culture.
We have expertise in Brazilian/Portuguese Studies, Cultural and Gender Studies, Film Studies, History, Literature, Art and Culture in Latin America, and Textual Criticism.
In recent years, we have successfully supervised to completion PhD students in subjects covering our whole range, but with a particular clustering around Latin American, Gender, and Cultural/Literary Studies topics.
We run regular research seminar series in Spanish/Portuguese and in Latin American Cultural Studies. Postgraduate students contribute significantly to the running and content of both.
For entry in the academic year beginning September 2019, the tuition fees are as follows:
UK/EU students (per annum): £4,327
International students (per annum): £18,500
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.
