CTI is home to over 40 PhD researchers working on topics in Translation and Interpreting, making us one of the largest centres for doctoral training in Translation and Interpreting in the UK (see our 'People' page for a full list of current PhD students). All students benefit from regular research events hosted by the centre in addition to a full range of training and development opportunities provided by the QUB Graduate School. There is also a lively programme of student-led events, including weekly 'Translation and Interpreting Forum' events which feature a blend of visiting speakers and student presentations and discussions about work in progress.

To become a PhD candidate at QUB you must submit an application through our online applications portal. Before submitting a formal application, however, we strongly encourage prospective candidates to first contact their desired supervisor to discuss the research they hope to conduct. This provides an opportunity for us to confirm whether we have appropriate supervisory capacity at the time of your application and also to provide feedback on your research plans before you submit a formal application. All PhD applications must include a research proposal of no more than 1000 words (excluding references). Your proposal should include:
Proposals are also strengthened by the inclusion of an indicative bibliography (not counted towards the 1000 word limit) providing details of the main academic sources you expect to draw upon during your research.
In most cases, a Skype interview will also be conducted with prospective candidates. This allows us to better understand your proposed research and gives you an opportunity to get to know your supervisor and their approach.
