Placement Record for Recent PhD graduates

Our PhD graduates go on to have successful careers in academia and other walks of life. In the last census of PhD graduates admitted since 2005, we found that nearly two thirds of them currently hold an academic position at a university or college somewhere in the world. Our graduates go on to secure Research Fellowships and Lectureships in colleges and university departments in Europe, the US, and elsewhere. Recent graduates are working at the Universities of: Cambridge, Oxford, London, Bristol, Manchester, Durham, and St Andrews in the UK; Berlin, Köln, Tübingen, Kiel, Bern, Lisbon, and Bifrost University (Iceland) in Europe; Georgetown, Brown, Pittsburgh, and Pomona College in the US; Singapore, and Otago.

Others have embarked on successful careers in museums and libraries, teaching in schools, or in law.
