Research overview

Research facilities


My decision to undertake a PhD at Nottingham was influenced by the positive experiences I had when studying for my BA and MA within the department, and the support I was given to develop my interests in Ukraine, having spent time there on my year abroad. Since starting my PhD I have received a very high level of support from my supervisors, who have helped me to develop as a researcher and guided me through some of the more difficult stages of my research. The postgraduate community within MLC is also very supportive, and I have found the weekly Work in Progress seminars particularly useful, as they provide a relatively informal, friendly setting for PG students to share their research ideas.
