Visit our website for more information on fees, scholarships, postgraduate loans and other funding options to study at Swansea University - 'Welsh University of the Year 2017' (Times and Sunday Times Good University Guide 2017). This programme is designed primarily for students wishing to pursue comparative projects in literary or film studies. The department's strengths lie in memory studies, women's writing and feminism, the theory and practice of translation, politics and culture in the 20th Century and enquiries are welcomed in these and other areas. Applicants are strongly advised to consult the department on their choice of topic in advance of application, however, and to work further on this choice in the course of the first term.

Assessment methods

You submit a thesis of up to 40, 000 words, which demonstrates a significant contribution to the subject area. This is followed by an oral examination of the thesis (viva) by two examiners who are not your supervisors, one of whom is external to Swansea.
