The third year (or part time equivalent) is devoted to writing up research for the Ph D thesis.
For elective requirements, you may pursue at an advanced level of specific national literatures and of international literature as a global phenomenon.
You may also elect to work as an intern at a literary press.
On successful completion of the upgrade process, students are formally upgraded to Ph D and proceed to the second year.
(If the assessors consider there to be shortcomings in the core chapter or research proposal, students will be asked to revise it to their satisfaction before the upgrade to Ph D status can be confirmed.) Students are not normally permitted to proceed to the second year until the upgrade process has been completed.

During the third year (or part time equivalent) students will present draft chapters to their main supervisor for comment, before completing a final draft of the thesis.
Once a full draft is complete, the work is assessed by all members of the supervisory committee and the student can either submit the thesis or move on to Continuation Status to be given a further 12 months to complete the thesis and submit for examination.
