|Academic||Areas of Supervision|
|Professor Linda Newson||
|Dr Mark Thurner||
|Dr Ainhoa Montoya||
To apply for a research degree, please first contact the Institute. Even if your area of interest in Latin American studies is not listed above, we may be able to support your research. Once in contact with the Institute, you will be put in touch with a potential supervisor. It is important that you discuss your outline research proposal with them, and that you feel that you can work together. Your supervisor will discuss any further development or re-focusing of your proposal before the formal application is taken to the Institute Research Degrees Committee for approval.
Research degrees can be completed on a full-time basis (up to four years) or on a part-time basis (up to seven years).
Before agreeing to accept you, the Institute will require you to submit a research proposal, so it is worthwhile having this drafted ahead of a formal application. Guidelines on drafting your research proposal.
