Sheffield Hallam University
Students embark on an intensive, supervised piece of investigative work and build their own original area of expertise. Students can choose from a wide range of research topics, from renaissance literature to creative writing. The way the PhD is completed can vary: from writing an extended 80,000 word thesis to a practice based PhD that comprises a 40,000 word thesis and one or more original creative works. Students build on previous academic or professional experience to develop their expertise; choose between traditional thesis-based research or practice-based research; take part in a vibrant research culture that includes training events and PhD seminars.
Normally a Master's degree in English or another appropriate discipline, plus a 1st or Upper 2nd Class Honours degree or equivalent; direct PhD registration may be permitted if students hold a Master's degree, or an overseas Master's degree of equivalent standard, which is postgraduate according to the UK Quality Assurance Agency�s National Qualifications Framework; included training in research and a research-based project report/dissertation or equivalent; if English is not the student's 1st language they typically need an IELTS 7.0 score with a minimum of 5.5 in all skills, or equivalent.
Study depends on the area of research chosen, but includes a compulsory research methods module if students do not have prior research qualifications at postgraduate level.
