The Department has a lively research atmosphere with over 15 research students currently registered. Research students are expected to take a full part in department life, attending seminars and consortia, and presenting papers. Full-time students will be required to take research methodology courses run by LUMS or other Faculties. Part-time students who are unable to attend courses will be given guided reading and activities to make up any gaps in their research practice.
Research degrees are most likely to be completed successfully and in good time when there is a good match between the interest and availability of a potential supervisor, the interests of the applicant and the importance and accessibility of the topic. Applicants may find viable areas of study suggested on our Faculty website, the information will also allow you to ensure a good fit between your interests and our areas of expertise.
