Lancaster University is ranked in the top 10 in three major UK league tables (6th The Times 2018, 9th The Guardian 2018, and 9th The Complete University Guide 2018) and 83 per cent of Lancaster's research has been rated internationally excellent or world leading (REF 2014).
PhD students enjoy close supervision by a group of well-established faculty members that specialise in their research topic, and have access to a wide range of advanced research training courses, which are provided in coordination with the ESRC-funded North West Social Science Doctoral Training Partnership (NWSSDTP).
