Geography

All research students are required to complete an appropriate programme of research methods training. This may involve enrolling on the MSc in Social Research Methods - a stand-alone Masters degree - before proceeding to a PhD. This is known as a 1+3 degree. Students who have already completed a programme of research methods training can apply for the basic, 3-year doctoral degree leading to a PhD. Applications for research courses are welcomed across any of our research clusters, each of which maintains a strong international reputation. Geographers also provide interdisciplinary doctoral supervision in subject areas such as colonial and postcolonial studies, contemporary European studies, development studies and migration studies.
