Graduate Studies in Spanish

The Spanish Sub-Faculty of the Modern and Medieval Languages Faculty at the University of Oxford is pleased to invite applications for doctoral research across the range of Spanish and Spanish American studies from the medieval period to the present day. Hispanic studies at Oxford offers a lively community with research spanning a wealth of topics in literature, culture, and linguistics. Our DPhil students benefit from excellent resources and support. Please see an outline of the application process and the research profiles of colleagues in Spanish for more detailed information.

For candidates wishing to be considered for funding, the deadline for applications is 8 January 2021. All applicants are eligible to be considered for funding through the AHRC DTP (shared by the Universities of Oxford, Cambridge, and the Open University). You must make sure you complete the additional AHRC funding application and indicate this on your Oxford application form if you wish to be considered in this competition. In addition, the University and its constituent colleges offer a range of other sources of funding, including studentships from the Clarendon Fund

The Sub-Faculty of Spanish also participates in various Masters courses offered by the Modern Languages Faculty and the Humanities Division, which also include interdisciplinary courses such as Comparative Literature and Critical Translation, and Medieval Studies. Some funding for MSt and MPhil students is available centrally.

Anybody interested in applying to undertake a DPhil in Spanish  (including comparative work with a Spanish element) or a Masters with a specialisation in Spanish is welcome to contact the Spanish Graduate Convenor, Dr Olivia Vázquez-Medina (
