Course summary

Conduct research at the cutting edge of the discipline working alongside a team of specialist academic advisers and renowned experts qualified to supervise research topics such as: Iranian politics and foreign policy, international security, NATO, Italian foreign policy, European integration, global environmental politics, trade politics, development politics and political economy. It is a very exciting time to be researching within politics and the group's research covers a range of themes.

You will work on an advanced research project with a supervisory team of academic experts under the Director of Studies. You are normally registered as an ‘MPhil/PhD’ candidate and will apply to transfer to ‘PhD’ status 12–21 months after registration, based on your progress to date. You will develop your professional and research skills as well as your research in a range of contexts, as very much a part of the school’s research culture as we seek to engage with policy-makers and the public.
