International Politics

The Department of International Politics welcomes suitably qualified applicants with original research topics for its PhD Programme in International Politics. The programme is intended to produce scholars who have the analytical and methodological skills to design independent research projects, generate publications that advance substantive and theoretical knowledge and understanding and who are able to teach at university level. The substantive and methodological nature of the PhD programme, the diverse research interests of staff members and our London location have resulted in the completion of a range of innovative doctoral dissertations.

Entry requirements

Applicants should have a track record of high academic achievement, demonstrated by a good undergraduate degree with at least a second class (upper division) pass or equivalent; plus a good Masters-level degree with at least a pass with merit (or equivalent).

Assessment methods

You will submit a substantial formally constructed upgrade or transfer document for assessment and present at the annual research colloquium. Your progress is periodically assessed during years two and three of research. This also ensures that you are receiving appropriate levels of supervision, training, and practical support.

Sponsorship information
