Course info

Summary

We offer two types of research degree: an MPhil or a PhD – that consider topics, organisations or concepts relating to social work and social care services.

In the School of Social Policy we offer much more than a degree. PhD students have the opportunity to take part in a wide range of events including Departmental Research Seminars, Research Centre Seminars, Postgraduate Research Student Seminars, as well as a vibrant and engaged PhD researcher community.

Our PhD programmes offer you a combination of taught courses in the first year and careful supervision throughout your study, with the aim of helping you to produce a thesis that makes a significant and original contribution to the discipline.

Prospective applicants for research degrees in any aspect of social work and social care are invited to apply, outlining their special interests. All research degree programmes may be undertaken either by full-time or part-time study or via distance learning.

We take care to match you with a suitable supervisor, and welcome applications to work in a wide variety of areas. Joint supervision, both between staff within the Department, and with staff in other departments is possible.
