Latin American Studies

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). The focus is on 20th century Latin American fiction and testimonial writing with particular expertise in Argentinian studies. All research students in Hispanic Studies are required to attend skills and training courses at College and Institutional level. They give presentations to other research students and staff at departmental seminars and the annual departmental postgraduate symposium in June and the College of Arts and Humanities conference in October. Advanced research students may have opportunities to teach undergraduate tutorials and seminars. You have a budget (currently £200 per year) to attend conferences outside Swansea.

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.
