Birkbeck, University of London
This programme will help you to achieve a critical conceptual understanding of evidence and theory relating to recent developments in the field. You will then be in a position to apply this understanding to your own professional context. You will take taught modules as part of your qualifying requirement. The aim of these modules is to help you to gain the skills, knowledge and understanding to engage with and evaluate research and theory. These modules will also enable you to prepare and carry out a research project.
As part of the qualifying requirement, you will complete 180 credits of postgraduate taught modules in the department. At the doctoral phase, a dissertation of 45,000-55,000 words will be required. At the end of the taught component, you will be considered for entry to the research component of the programme, if you have satisfactorily passed your modules and demonstrated evidence of independent research skills and sufficient specialist knowledge in an area commensurate with the research interests of staff in the department. At the end of the taught year(s), you will be asked to attend an interview where your candidacy for the PhD will be assessed.
Our School attracts funding for studentships that ensure researchers of the highest standard can pursue their research with us. We offer up to 15 fully funded postgraduate research opportunities for 2015-2016 entry.
