Program content

Year One (Years One and Two for part-time students)

On beginning the Ph.D. program, a supervisory committee will be set up for each student consisting of the Director of Graduate Studies as chair, the student’s main supervisor and a second supervisor. Where the Director of Graduate Studies is the main supervisor, the Head of School will act as chair.

By week 6 of the first semester after the student’s registration, this committee will have produced a written document for the student’s file, outlining work which the student is expected to have completed by the end of the first year (two years in the case of part-time students), such as a review of the literature on their chosen topic, and a report on their pilot study. The document will include recommendations for any linguistics or research training modules to be attended during the year.

The student should see their main supervisor regularly, as agreed by student and supervisor.

By week 5 of the second semester after registration (fourth in the case of part-time students) the student should submit a draft thesis chapter and a detailed thesis proposal/outline to their supervisory committee. This work will be discussed at a Annual Review meeting held in June, and chaired by the Director of Graduate Studies. The supervisory committee will then write a joint report either removing the probationary status of the student, or indicating what requirements have first to be satisfied.

Graduate Program Transferable Skills

Students must take 30 credits from the Graduate Program in their First Year.

Year Two (Years Three and Four for part-time students)

During this year the student should aim to complete a first draft of their dissertation. An Annual review will take place in June to review progress.

Year Three (Years Five and Six for part-time students)

The completed thesis should be submitted and examined during this year.
