Birkbeck, University of London
An MPhil/PhD is an opportunity to undertake a major piece of research under the supervision of someone with academic expertise in your field. As a research student, you will be interested in your own development as a lifelong learner and will seek to engage in critical debate and key issues of education and lifelong learning. You will develop your skills as an independent and active learner, and apply your research skills with theoretical perspectives and understandings of lifelong learning. You will be immersed in an academically stimulating and challenging environment, with easy access to high-quality research resources. On completing an MPhil/PhD degree you will have developed advanced skills in research and scholarly writing, and will be able to use these to embark on, or further, a career in research. As many of our students study part-time, you may have the opportunity to apply your developing research skills in your current career.
Our School attracts funding for studentships that ensure researchers of the highest standard can pursue their research with us.
