Russian Studies

Researchers working at the University are part of a stimulating research culture within the Department of Modern Languages and beyond, benefitting from special links to the Centre for Russian, European and Eurasian Studies (CREES) based in the College of Social Sciences. Between the 2 they are able to offer a wide range of expertise, and hence supervision opportunities, in particular on contemporary topics in cultural studies and social science.

Entry requirements

Our requirements for postgraduate research are dependent on the type of programme you are applying for. For MRes and MA by Research programmes, entry usually requires a good (normally a 2.1 or above) Honours degree, or an equivalent qualification if you were educated outside the UK.
If you are applying for a PhD then you will usually also need to hold a good Master's qualification.

Course modules

The MA by research programme requires students to prepare a dissertation of up to 40,000 words on a topic of their choice, for which an academic staff member will provide expert supervision. The PhD leads to a dissertation of up to 80,000 words on a subject of choice and under the expert supervision of an academic member of staff.
