University of St Andrews
PhD students: During the 1st year of study students will undertake a tailored programme of generic and subject-specific research and general training. At the end of this year, subject to satisfactory progress, students will be upgraded to Ph.D status. The Postgraduate Committee meets with all 1st year students in the spring to decide on this change of status. Although a recommendation to re-register as a PhD student is the norm, it is not automatic and depends upon: Satisfactory progress of research (based on supervisor's recommendation); satisfactory completion of research methods in international relations module and research proposal; satisfactory completion of the training programme.
Strong performance at Master's level in relevant subject area. Overseas applicants whose 1st language is not English must provide evidence of competence in written and spoken English (e.g. satisfactory IELTS score or TOEFL score).
There are no compulsory modules or classes as part of the PhD programme.
MPhil: 9 months of coursework and assessment followed by a 40,000-word thesis, usually completed in the last 15 months of the programme. PhD: Research will lead to the production of a thesis of up to 80,000 words.
ESRC; entrant accommodation bursary; recent graduate discount; Santander 600 scholarships; Thomas and Margaret Roddan Trust bursary.
