A key strength of our research environment is the dialogue between research and practice-based staff which helps us to deliver impactful research outcomes in terms of practice and policy in the wider world.
Our overarching PhD/MPhil programme of Journalism Studies covers all projects that we supervise within any of the fields of journalism, media and cultural studies. We particularly invite applications for PhD or MPhil projects that fall within one or more of our five research groups.
However, we will also consider applications for projects that do not fit entirely within these parameters.
You will have the opportunity to make an indelible mark on academia and we are committed to help you reach your fullest potential, with the assistance of our expert research supervisors and the academic, technical and personal support provided by our experienced staff.
We provide training and a high level of support, and the postgraduate community contributes vitally to the University's international reputation for research.
