Postgraduate Admissions

The Options Courses were incredibly insightful and fascinating. The ability to sit in on various courses allowed us to gain a breadth of knowledge on varying themes in postcolonial South Asia. The Option Essay was a great way to set us up for the next assessment of our dissertation, and the feedback was very helpful.

Ayesha Baloch (August 2020)

Very satisfied. I had a brilliant year and it was a fantastic experience. The strength of this course, compared with other larger courses, is the community spirit fostered by the Centre and the dedicated facilities and staff. The weekly departmental lectures showcased some of the most original and thought-provoking research, and it was a joy to feel a part of a vibrant research community.

I had a very positive experience producing my dissertation and I really appreciate the support, accommodations, and flexibility of everyone at the Centre and my advisor.
