The School of English Drama and Film at UCD welcomes applications from potential PhD students. A UCD PhD is a three to four year research degree, undertaken within a clearly structured programme. The programme includes taught modules, a Research and Professional Development Plan and the possibility to develop teaching skills.
All students are assigned a primary supervisor, and in some cases where the work is interdisciplinary, co-supervision will be offered. Students are supported in their programme of independent research which frequently culminates in the production of research worthy of peer-reviewed publications.
