The PhD in Caribbean and Latin American Studies enables graduate students to pursue in-depth research under expert supervision on the history, culture, social anthropology, and politics of this area. The focus of the University’s scholars who undertake supervision in this field is from the late eighteenth-century to the present day.
Students are registered for the degree of PhD (Doctor of Philosophy) from their admission to the University, although this status is probationary until the first Annual Review has taken place, normally between 12 and 18 months from registration.
The usual period of doctoral study is three years, though the University’s Regulations also permit candidates who make particularly rapid progress to apply to the University Research Committee for permission to submit at the end of their second year of study.
Part-time applications will be considered and may be accepted where teaching provision is available.
Each student is allocated two supervisors. There is a First (or Principal) Supervisor, who is the student’s regular guide during his or her research, and with whom the student meets regularly throughout the year. There is also a Second Supervisor, whom the student may consult on a more limited basis where a ‘second opinion’ on a particular draft chapter may be helpful.
Enquiries should be directed in the first instance to our Admissions Officer (London Programmes) on email@example.com or by telephone to +44 (0)1280 827514.
