Interested in postgraduate studies in English?
The Department of English warmly invites students who have completed a BA degree to consider undertaking an Honours year at Otago or, if they wish to study part-time, to consider a Postgraduate Diploma in Arts over several years. Both qualifications serve as a necessary step to enter the MA programme, and consist of a series of taught papers and a research essay on a topic selected by the candidate.

MA or PhD:
Students who have completed a BA Honours or Postgraduate Diploma in the subject at a satisfactory level (normally A- or above) are welcome to apply for an MA, and students who currently already hold an MA are welcome to apply to do a PhD.
