Modern Languages research opportunities


With Modern Languages at The University of Nottingham rated 5th in the UK for “Research Power” in the latest Research Exercise Framework, we can strongly commit to all of our research students being involved in a vibrant and exciting academic community that has research at its very heart. We offer a masters degree by research and PhD supervision across eight interlinked, cross-disciplinary research areas

Our postgraduates go into a variety of careers.  Many have obtained academic posts in Higher Education institutions in the UK and abroad.  Others have embarked upon careers in publishing, teaching, curriculum design, and professional interpreting and translating.

Most research degree courses are available to take full time and part time. 

You will join a lively and passionate research community, receive training in research methodology and presentation and participate in regular staff and postgraduate work-in-progress seminars. You will also have access to extensive computing facilities and a designated postgraduate study space.

We are home to the Centre for Translation and Comparative Cultural Studies, the Centre for Research on Cuba, the Hennessy Collection (an archive of Cuban newspapers and journals), and have close links with the Centre for the Study of Post Conflict Societies. We also host a number of interdisciplinary research groups and networks.
