Research Postgraduates

We offer three kinds of research degree for postgraduate students.

Here at the School of Politics and International Studies (POLIS), we find our students decide to pursue a research degree for many different reasons.

Some want to research a subject relevant to their profession, or change their career direction. Others progress from MA programmes, or simply wish to study a topic of interest.

Our school brings together academics from across political, international, and development disciplines, and much of our work is highly international in orientation. Staff expertise covers all the main regions of the world.
