    Hi everyone, I have a BA (2:1) in English and and MA (Merit) in Classics and Ancient History from 2 different universities in the UK. After completing my MA I joined the business world and have been out of academia since 2013- so 3 years. I would like to return to university and do a PhD in Literature, but not in the UK; rather, in Europe. I've had a look at the PhD Portal website, and there are some universities abroad that offer courses in English, but I'm concerned about the procedure. Did any of you apply to do a humanities related PhD abroad and if so, how did you find it? How do I go about my application- i.e. would I have to contact potential supervisors like you do in the UK? Are my chances of doing a PhD ruined owing to the fact that I've been working in the past 3 years? Any advice would be welcome! Thanks x

    Hey, you should probably post this in the Postgraduate Applications forum. Study Help is where GCSE and A level students hang out.
