University of Sussex
We offer research supervision in areas including citizenship and migration, criminology, health, medicine, science, social theory, political sociology, childhood, gender, inequality and work. There are 2modes of entry for research students. First is traditional entry to a PhD; second is the MSc plus PhD pathway, which is the 1+3 route required by the Economic and Social Research Council (ESRC) for their studentship support. All new research students are required to participate in a programme of research training modules and to take other modules that may be recommended by the supervisor of their research. (Exemption from research training modules can be granted to those who have already taken such modules at postgraduate level.) Applicants who do not have a Masters degree may be expected to satisfactorily complete a piece of coursework, taken from the ESRC-recognised MSc in social research methods, before proceeding to research. The MA in social and political thought provides an excellent introduction to research for candidates with appropriate interests. Further training in research skills is provided as required.
Sociology has full 1+3 and +3 recognition from the ESRC; this includes access to three interdisciplinary Quota awards; there are financial opportunities for research students to contribute towards undergraduate teaching.
