Postgraduate Opportunities

We offer high quality supervision in a range of areas. This includes both empirical and conceptual research.

You can study for a MPhil or PhD degree with us. You'll need a good honours degree in any subject.

Studying with us

One of our main aims is to provide research training for PhD candidates. We have links with other university departments. This means we're able to facilitate training programmes in a range of relevant research skills.

The Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences has a Research Training Programme, which is available to all PEALS research students.
