Course summary

We have a lively and active group of research students and pride ourselves on our success rate, with most students completing their PhDs in around three years. We achieve this by providing effective supervision, access to a wide range of graduate courses to fine-tune your skills, and a stimulating research environment.

Currently there are approximately 40 students studying for a doctorate who are affiliated with the Division, with an annual intake of about 10 students. The Division has approximately 25 academic staff all trained and experts in supervision. We are proud to be involved in the Southampton ESRC Doctoral Training Centre and receive a number of studentships each year through this route.

The aim of the PhD programme in the Division is to prepare students for a career in research and teaching. Students are guided throughout their studies by their supervisor, with the aim that the student becomes the expert towards the end of the period of study. The programme of study is viewed as a training opportunity, with attendance at training courses, internships and collaboration encouraged where possible. The research is enhanced by a wide range of teaching opportunities on modules run by the Division. These range from running computer workshops to tutorials and lecturing, depending on the opportunities that arise.
