Staff associated with the Centre supervise a wide range of PhD students. We have both UK and international students.

As a result, CLACS draws together a large, vibrant and international community of PhD scholars working on Latin American and the Caribbean. 

Your research

PhD research conducted by our members is wide ranging.

Each PhD student follows a tailored training programme. It reflects the disciplinary/interdisciplinary, thematic and area specific nature of each student’s project.

We run many events and have a wide mailing list. We provide opportunities for PhD students to network with their peers locally, nationally and internationally.

Your background

Students come from a wide range of Social Science and Arts and Humanities disciplines. This ranges from anthropology to business studies, from urban planning to film studies.

We have a research interest in the environment. This means that the Centre also provides an important point of contact for PhD students in the physical, engineering and medical sciences.

These students come from disciplines and topics such as agriculture, civil engineering, health, marine sciences and physical geography.
