Literatures, Languages & Cultures

Meet our PhD students

Our community of more than 250 PhD students brings together doctoral researchers from multiple disciplines in the School of Literatures, Languages and Cultures (LLC) and beyond.

We've collated our student profiles into a single directory to showcase the range of topics studied.

The directory illustrates the often interdisciplinary nature of study at LLC. Supervisors and students are not always from the same subject area, and in some cases, supervisors are based at other schools or universities.  

To make it easy to navigate, the page is organised alphabetically by name of PhD programme.
