Be part of a thriving, supportive postgraduate research community in the School of Politics, Philosophy, Language and Communication Studies.​

Our school has a strong tradition for research that reaches out across disciplines, and works to change society for the better. Well-qualified candidates have the opportunity to build their research career with support from experienced academics, and explore themes and ideas that go beyond one single subject.​

Students will be able to tap into links with other schools - from literature to economics - and apply for places on ongoing research projects that are contributing to new policy, new initiatives and new thinking.​

We also offer students valuable support in researching, writing and submitting their PhD thesis, as well as access to seminars, events, workshops, and conferences.
