Training in the general and specific skills required for graduate studies is an important component of Higher Degree Programmes. It is obligatory in the case of students funded by the Arts & Humanities Research Council (AHRC)
and its guaranteed provision is regarded as a pre-requisite by the British Academy
when making its graduate awards.
Department and School Training
Training in such skills and subjects (where appropriate) as computing, modern languages, bibliographical research and the use of libraries and archives, as well as the preparation and structuring of theses are provided either by the Department of Spanish, Portuguese & Latin American Studies; through the Department of Digital Humanities; and by the Modern Language Centre.
Graduate students are welcome to attend any relevant undergraduate modules taught in the department by arrangement with the lecturer involved or with the Departmental office.
The department also has a flourishing seminar series which all graduate students are welcome to attend.
Graduate students at King's are also automatically part of the Graduate School community which provides non-discipline specific skills development and training courses in a supportive environment.
School of Advanced Studies (SAS)
Graduate students in London are fortunate in being only a short walk away from the Institute for the Study of the Americas and the Institute of Germanic and Romance Studies which offer a vast array of resources and training for all students of Spanish and Portuguese speaking countries.
