Prospective PhD: Apply to Victoria University Wellington (7/1/2013)

Victoria University of Wellington is currently inviting prospective PhD students to apply for the 1 July application round (there will be another in November). Two areas of expertise in the English Programme may be of particular interest to Victoria-List members: colonial literature of the nineteenth century, and, within the field of children’s literature , the late Victorian concept of adolescence. Victoria University was rated first in New Zealand in the recent national research rankings (PBRF) and the English Programme was ranked first amongst English programmes in New Zealand. The 2013 QS World UniversityRankings rank Victoria as one of the top 50 universities in the world in four subjects, one of which is English Language and Literature. For information on how to apply, please see How to Apply for a PhD on the Faculty of Graduate Research website. A number of scholarships are available for students of exceptional academic merit, open to New Zealand and international students in any discipline. All offers of Victoria Doctoral Scholarships from 2013 will consist of a $23,500 per annum stipend plus domestic tuition fees for up to three years.
