Min. entry requirements: 2:i undergraduate degree (or equivalent) and ideally a Master’s in a related subject

This degree requires no coursework; the main focus is a dissertation of 80,000 words, which will be undertaken under the supervision of an appropriate member of staff. You will be encouraged to undertake relevant research-skills training and, where appropriate, further language study. You may apply if you already have (or are finishing) an MA, you wish to pursue further research, and have a clear project in mind, which can be pursued under the direction of a Warwick staff member.

You would be initially registered for the MPhil, and upon completion of a successful upgrade placed on the track for the PhD.
