PhD Study in the Department of Urban Studies and Planning


  Department of Urban Studies & Planning


About the Programme

All our PhD students have the support of two (or more) supervisors to guide them through their projects, a dedicated training programme of support within our Department (which includes weekly workshops), and wider training provided by the University and the White Rose Doctoral Training Partnership (WRDTP).

Research areas and topics

We welcome research proposals addressing topics from across the broad range of urban studies and planning and related disciplines such as geography, sociology, international development and politics.

We are particularly keen to supervise PhD topics which align with our research priorities - details of potential projects are provided below. We encourage you to treat these projects as starting points for a conversation with us.

If you find one or more projects which excites you then we invite you to contact us – either direct to the proposed supervisor or through the Director of the Research School, Dr Glyn Williams.
