Course summary

Our doctoral programme in Human Sciences allows you to conduct cutting-edge research in fields including Psychology, Social Work, Public Health and Sports Science with support from our experts.

When you undertake a research degree (MPhil/PhD) at our School of Human Sciences, you are supported by a team of world-leading experts and active researchers. You also get access to a range of state-of-the-art facilities, including observation laboratories, eye-tracking capabilities, EEG, Edu-Logger, Nexus 4 and Biotrace.

As a research student in Human Sciences, you join a community of research students and benefit from the resources, community, and events at our Institute for Lifecourse Development (ILD). There are opportunities for PhD students to gain support with research costs and to present their research at national and international conferences.

What you should know about this course

  • The standard entry route requires you to register as an MPhil/PhD student in Human Sciences and to transfer to PhD once you have demonstrated satisfactory progress.
  • We have several subject endorsement pathways so that you can specialise your research in Psychology, Social Work, Public Health or Sports Science.
  • You will work with a team of 3 supervisors who will provide ongoing support and guidance.
  • Flexible registration with both full and part-time routes available.

Teaching

There are advertised research study days but most of the teaching takes the form of regular supervision meetings with members of the supervisory team.

Assessment

As your MPhil/PhD progresses, you will move through several review points including a transfer viva to ensure good progress and high quality-work. You will be assessed through your research thesis. Following your submission, you will have an oral examination.
