Course summary

Overview

The School is a member of the innovative, multi-institutional LISS-DTP group (London Interdisciplinary Social Science Doctoral Training Partnership), which draws together doctoral training opportunities at some of London’s top institutions: King’s, Imperial College London and Queen Mary, University of London. Supported by the Economic and Social Research Council (ESRC), this partnership offers doctoral students excellent opportunities to develop their research skills and experience and to work as part of an interdisciplinary community of researchers. Our research is built around a number of strategic research centres and groupings, which conduct both theoretically-driven and applied research. These groups are inclusive and active, encouraging cross-group membership, interdisciplinarity, and collaboration with members of the School and other researchers across the College. In addition, we have strong links with leading scholars from across the world, as well as with researchers and practitioners in private and public sector institutions in the UK and abroad.

Course detail

All students on the doctoral programme are registered for an MPhil in the first instance. At the beginning of the programme you will work with your supervisors to assess your individual training needs. You will use this to develop a personalised training schedule that draws on foundational and advanced courses made available to you through the School, the King’s Centre for Doctoral Studies and the London Interdisciplinary Social Science Doctoral Training Partnership (LISS-DTP). These courses will hone your academic skills and prepare you for the demands of your specific research project. After around 12 months (or the part time equivalent), you will demonstrate that you are ready for formal upgrade to the PhD programme. This involves the examination of a substantial document that shows (i) you have identified an original and interesting research problem and (ii) you have the skills and expertise to tackle it within the time available. You will be supported throughout your PhD by two academic supervisors, who will provide expert advice and guidance on your progress and your project. Your project will culminate in the submission of a thesis of up to 100,000 words in length. Full-time students must submit their thesis within four years of the start of their registration. Part-time students must submit within seven years.
