There is a lively postgraduate community at CREW

Postgraduate students benefit from an informal atmosphere and are encouraged to participate in the research culture of the Centre.  External examiner’s reports on CREW postgraduate programme have noted that some of the material was of ‘near publishable’ standard and that there was a rare feeling of ‘participating in the making of a subject.’      

CREW MA Students benefit from access to a dedicated teaching room and library, while PhD students have an additional dedicated room equipped with IT facilities and an additional library.

Postgraduates benefit from the Centre’s ongoing research activities including: 

  • Regular Research Seminars given by guest speakers.
  • Opportunities for publishing original research in the International Journal of Welsh Writing in English, the leading academic journal in the field, with which the Centre has close associations.
  • The occasional provision of bursaries for postgraduate work.
  •  A programme of visits by contemporary writers (in collaboration with Creative Writing)
  • Collaboration with the department of Welsh, to enable students, if they so wish, to integrate the study of the two literatures if modern Wales.
  • Participation in the activities of the Association for Welsh Writing in English, the body that oversees a range of scholarly activities, including three major series of publications.
  • Participation in the multi-disciplinary activities of the Richard Burton Centre for the Study of Wales
