Course summary

Overview

We have a strong, intellectually stimulating and vibrant research culture into which postgraduates are inducted and embedded. Our research community of academics and scholars are committed to producing world-class research and our ranking at 7th place in the 2014 Research Excellence Framework is evidence of our strong international reputation for excellence. Our research programme aims to offer knowledge and expertise in subject-specific and generic skills, qualifying you for both academic and non-academic positions in a variety of organisations. PhD students are fully integrated into our research community. Seminars and events organised by our research groups give students the opportunity to interact with a wide range of academic staff on topics relevant to their research, broadening the experience of the students. Our students are supervised by a team of at least two members of academic staff and regular meetings monitor progress and develop the timetable for the completion of the PhD. Students present their research at the twice-yearly Research in Completion events, which provides detailed individual feedback from a panel of academic staff. Full-time students are expected to devote at least 39 hours per week for 46 weeks a year to their PhD work (part-time 21 hours per week). Research students will need to produce and submit a thesis which will be examined by an oral examination. Careers include teaching, universities, civil service / Foreign Office, European Commission, journalism, business, politics, and NGOs. Our alumni include Huw Edwards (BBC), Neil Bentley (CBI), and Leri Edwards (European Commission).
