Course summary

Overview

This is a potential research degree area, subject to the approval of the University. If you are interested in undertaking a research degree in this area.

Abertay has a particular expertise in the areas of law relating to human trafficking, labour law, human rights, the law relating to debt, intellectual property, and corporate law and governance. We welcome applications from students considering research into these areas. These are matters which are strongly influenced by political developments within Europe and also by public awareness of the interconnected nature of a business, the availability of human labour, and the need for businesses and governments to act responsibly and in accordance with an established principle of good governance.

Our research students draw on the accounting, finance, management, human resources and marketing expertise of their fellow researchers at Abertay – part of the University’s interdisciplinary research ethos.

A research degree at Abertay is excellent preparation for a career as a researcher and an academic, as well as a diverse range of professions outside of academia.

Our research degrees

You have the option of studying an MSc by Research, an MPhil or a PhD.

When deciding which degree is right for you, you should consider the level of commitment required, the duration, cost and your career aspirations.

That being said, our research degrees are flexible. You can begin an MSc or an MPhil and then seek to transfer to a PhD without having to start your project all over again. You can also switch from full-time to part-time study, and vice versa.

MPhil

The award of Master of Philosophy demonstrates a systematic understanding of knowledge and a critical awareness of current problems and/or the application of original thought, much of which is at (or informed by) the forefront of your field of study or area of professional practice.
