Northumbria has a large and lively postgraduate community in the Humanities. Successful applicants will be able to take advantage of a newly established Institute for the Humanities and an associated Multidisciplinary Research Centre. Our students benefit from generous research space and resources in the recently expanded Glenamara Centre as well as additional research facilities provided by the Institute of the Humanities. PhD students develop a portfolio of skills and competencies through the Humanities Training Programme, the Teaching Shadowing Scheme, the annual PhD conference and the Graduate School's Professional Development and Research Training Programme. In addition, each student is provided with a research allowance for conference attendance and travel as well as funding to support the organisation and development of research networks, conferences and seminar series.
Major investment in library resources to support research activities means that Northumbria can now boast a diverse range of important research materials and extensive subscriptions to relevant scholarly journals and databases.
