Our doctoral students come from different disciplines, and from a diverse range of academic institutions within and outside the UK.

 The Parkes Institute offers a various means of support to its PhD students:


Experienced Supervisors

Each student is supervised by a team of experienced supervisors whose expertise covers a wide range of approaches, disciplines and periods

Parkes Library

The Parkes Library and Jewish Archives provide an excellent resource for students of Jewish Studies

Parkes Doctoral Seminars

The Parkes doctoral seminars offers an informal and friendly platform for discussion throughout the academic year


 Our students are encouraged to actively participate in Parkes outreach work, events and teaching


Students are offered support to identify and apply for funding and scholarships, including Faculty funding but also WUN funding, Parkes Outreach Fellowships and ORT Studentships

The Parkes Institute prides itself on being at the cutting edge of research in terms of identifying both new topics and fresh approaches. It is thus appropriate that we have a flourishing doctoral programme, one that reflects the international nature of our staff and student body alike.
