Applied Social Research PhD University of Manchester



Course info


The PhD in Applied Social Research is a three year full-time programme (Six years part-time) that examines important issues based on large-scale and complex social surveys using advanced statistical methods. We have a strong connection with the Cathie Marsh Institute for Social Research (CMI), an interdisciplinary research centre within the School of Social Sciences at The University of Manchester. The institute provides a focal point for the application of quantitative methods in interdisciplinary social science research, in order to generate a world class research environment. The Institute builds on our existing strong reputation for quantitative social science and the development and application of advanced quantitative methods. A distinctive feature of the Institute is the application of advanced and innovative methods to address social, economic and political questions.

You will have access to a dedicated Researcher Development Team who will support your professional development throughout your PhD journey and beyond. Our researcher development programme will enable you to become more aware of your developing researcher identity, equipping you with the skills you need during you PhD and prepare you to integrate into the researcher community. We offer training sessions to build your skills and confidence in writing and presenting, with specific sessions on viva preparation, thesis submission and preparing for your Review Panel. We have established Postgraduate Research Exchange programmes with a small number of institutions around the world, offering you the opportunity to visit another institution, access research resources and experience another academic culture as well as build professional networks.
