About Hispanic and Latin American Studies at University of Nottingham

At the end of three years’ full-time registration, plus one year optional writing-up, you will have written a thesis of between 80,000-100,000 words, in English, Spanish or Portuguese, on a topic which makes a significant contribution to the sum of knowledge on the Hispanic or Lusophone worlds.

You will normally have completed a research-preparation masters degree in a related discipline. You will have agreed your research topic with a main supervisor before you start. You will be given a second supervisor, whose field of expertise complements that of your main supervisor, when you begin. You will work with this team closely for the duration of your study. You will also be welcome to consult any other member of the department whose research seems of relevance to your own work. You will attend all departmental research seminars and special lectures and deliver at least one paper of your own each year, usually at the annual Postgraduate Forum.

If there are areas of research methodology which need to be addressed, you will be invited to attend relevant courses offered by the Graduate School or your supervisor will advise you. During your time with us, you will be considered a fully-paid-up member of the research community, with the right to contribute to debate, start-up research initiatives and attend national and international conferences, when and as your supervisor deems appropriate. Our research community is very strong and full of strong-minded people. It should be a very rewarding journey.

You have also the possibility of registering for, or transferring to, the European Doctorate, which has the advantage of enabling doctoral graduates’ PhDs to be recognised elsewhere in Europe.
