Course content

Students register initially for the MPhil. In your first year you attend a general doctoral seminar and classes in methodology and in relevant employment relations and organisational behaviour topics (the precise programme is defined in light of your previous training) and work on a detailed research proposal. When this has been successfully defended in a major review (normally within 18 months of entry), your registration will be upgraded to PhD.

Doctoral researchers are encouraged to participate in the intellectual life of the group. In many cases they are able to collaborate with staff on joint research. After upgrading there are opportunities to undertake part-time teaching on our undergraduate courses. In addition to general sources of finance for research students in the School, we have modest funds available within the group to support conference travel.
