We offer two programmes of graduate studies, a one-year M.Phil. and a research Ph.D. In both cases we usually expect candidates to hold a high Second or a First class BA degree. Funding opportunities may be available.
The M.Phil. in Sanskrit and South Asian Studies is a one-year course designed to promote an understanding of the region’s rich and complex cultural, religious and intellectual histories through the extensive corpus of textual sources in Sanskrit, Pali and Prakrit.
Our Ph.D. is a research degree obtained solely by submission of a doctoral thesis which should not exceed 80,000 words exclusive of footnotes and bibliography but subject to an overall word limit of 100,000 words exclusive of bibliography. We encourage students to discuss their research interests with us before making an application.
