What Will You Study

We have over 80 research students, making this one of the largest and most successful centres for sociological PhDs in Europe.

We place great emphasis on the importance of the relationship between yourself and your supervisors and welcome applications that match any of our staff or research centre interests.

We will normally assign two supervisors whose current research interests and expertise match your chosen topic of research.

A wide-ranging seminar programme organised within the Sociology Department includes departmental seminars with visiting speakers, postgraduate seminars and reading groups, and research group meetings on science studies, gender, race and class, mobilities, environment and culture, disability studies, etc..  We also regularly run intensive writing retreats.
