PhD

German and Dutch

 

Testimonials

Doing the PhD in the Cambridge German department was a wonderful experience - you have the chance to immerse yourself in a single topic, working with experts in the field, surrounded by other research students who might work on related areas or on wholly different topics, and with a varied series of research events. It was highly enriching and wholly supportive, both academically and personally.

Erica (August 2015)

The scholarly environment that Cambridge provides fits well with the PhD in German. An active graduate seminar and regular departmental conference schedule all contribute to an inclusive, cohesive and supportive student experience in the department.
