What will I learn?

Research students are welcomed into a cross-disciplinary, collaborative academic community where they are encouraged to conduct research with the support of a dedicated supervisory team.

The programme offers access to structured training, research forums, and networks. Training provides the opportunity to develop research skills which may be beneficial during the course and in future employment. Students are encouraged to present findings at conferences and symposia, and some may have the opportunity to undertake undergraduate teaching with the School, subject to proper training.

We encourage applications from students who wish to conduct research into any of our specialist areas of expertise, including EU law, international law, commercial law, dispute settlement and civil justice procedures, human rights and humanitarian law, environmental law, and criminal justice. Career and Personal Development: Throughout the research degree period, students are encouraged to take part in all activities associated with developing a research career. The available postgraduate research degree training programmes consider career development issues and students are encouraged to maintain training and development logs throughout their studies. In some cases students will have the opportunity to support undergraduate students and experience seminar teaching.
