Course summary

Our PhD in Social Policy offers you a unique opportunity to undertake research in a variety of social contexts. You may be interested in the questions around the development and implementation of social policy, in asking questions about why some policies work (and others do not) or in studying the relationships between different groups of people in the policy process, but whatever your specific research interests we are likely to have a supervisor with the experience to support you in this process.

You will be offered opportunities to access our master’s level research methods modules to provide a sound foundation of specific research knowledge and skills. In addition, you will have access to the University’s Proficio research training scheme which allows you to choose training programmes that meet the requirements of your own research topics and methodologies.

Your future

Our Graduates have gone on to take up posts in both clinical and management positions in Trusts, hospitals and care organisations as well as in local and county councils.
