Centre of Latin American Studies


The Centre has a strong community of PhD students working across a wide range of disciplines with leading scholars in their fields. Around 90% of our PhD students that pursue an academic career are offered posts at highly ranked universities.

There are usually around 12-15 PhD students based at the Centre of Latin American Studies at any one time, working across a wide range of disciplines. The students form a lively academic and social community, playing a full part in the Centre's activities, meeting regularly to present their latest research to each other and organizing seminars and conferences with the Centre's support. 

The Centre of Latin American Studies currently accepts PhD students in all fields. Supervisors from other Faculties or Departments may be willing to take on PhD students who apply via CLAS; alternatively they may encourage them to apply via their home Department. Applicants are advised to check this with their prospective supervisor before submitting an application.
