How to apply
Advice to applicants
If you are interested in applying for one of our PhD programmes, please send your enquiry to the Modern Languages PGR Director, Dr Peter Cave , in the first instance. She will review your qualifications and your research proposal before directing your enquiry to a potential supervisor among our translation and interpreting studies specialists.
The University requires an interview for all applicants to whom we consider making an offer.
Interviews will be conducted by two academics, usually the proposed main supervisor and the subject PGR Director (or an assigned representative).
The interview can be either face-to-face or via Skype, conference call or email.
The interview serves several purposes, allowing us to:
- get a better picture of your ability to carry out the proposed doctoral project than the research proposal on its own;
- tell you what the proposed supervisor(s) can bring to the project;
- discuss with you directly any potential problems with the practical aspects of your studies and explore solutions together.
