    The School supplies additional training through postgraduate and school seminars. Overall monitoring and evaluation of progress of research students is carried out by the School Postgraduate Committee, which also deals with all issues arising from postgraduate admissions and changes of enrolment.

    Opportunities for Careers

    It is anticipated that postgraduates will go on to pursue careers in a wide range of fields, such as research (both academic and non-academic), teaching, consultancy, development and charity work, museum and heritage posts, journalism and radio broadcasting. Among those who pursue academic careers, not all will necessarily do so within Cognition and Culture; some may take posts in related disciplines.

    Others may find positions within governmental and non-governmental organisations overseas.
