Middle Eastern Studies

Postgraduate opportunities in Middle Eastern Studies

The Faculty of Asian and Middle Eastern Studies offers two postgraduate degrees, an MPhil (which can be a taught course or a research degree) and a research PhD. In both cases we generally expect candidates to have at least upper intermediate knowledge of one or more Middle Eastern languages before commencing their postgraduate studies and a high Second or First class BA degree.

All graduate students in Middle Eastern Studies are attached to one of our Middle Eastern Studies research groups. Further information about their projects and activities is available on our Research pages.


Various funding options are available to graduate students in Middle Eastern Studies. Further details are available in our Funding section.
