Profile Description

Overview

Students carry out a supervised programme of research at the leading edge of their chosen subject. From an initial proposal, students design and conduct a research programme under the direction of one or two members of our academic staff. The PhD research is written up as a substantial thesis and assessed in an extensive oral examination. You can choose to study any topic in which we have research expertise. Details of research staff expertise and interests are available on individual staff pages.

Benefits of the MPhil and PhD

  • An opportunity to undertake original, in-depth research under expert supervision, within a supportive and vibrant research student community.
  • Access to advanced inter-disciplinary training in methodological skills, substantive subjects and additional research and presentation skills at the University of Bath and as part of the South West Doctoral Training Partnership.
  • The opportunity to present your work and discuss it with other researchers working on similar topics and participate in departmental research centre activities.
  • The opportunity to develop skills and a broader knowledge base by contributing to teaching.
