Research degree supervision

view from WT

All full time members of the WT staff supervise students pursuing research. You can study for the degrees of MA by Research (one year), MPhil (Two years) or PhD (Three years).

The interests of the five research-active full-time members of the WT staff cover a variety of contemporary concerns in theatre and performance. (For details of some recent book publications follow the links in our staff page). The School of English was awarded the highest rating of 5*A in the last Research Assessment Exercise. (The 5* signifies that the School's research was judged to be of international excellence; the equally important 'A' indicates that over 95% of staff were entered as active researchers.) The University offers excellent library facilities in the Brotherton Library, a member of the Consortium of University Research Libraries, and we offer excellent facilities for the pursuit of research through practice.

Information on admissions, fees, scholarships and procedures are available here on the School of English website. Please contact the postgrad-english@leeds.ac.uk with any enquiries.
