As Director of Graduate Studies, I want students to immerse themselves in the challenging and collegiate intellectual environment of the School of Geography to collectively produce knowledge that shapes social and physical worlds. We are committed to honing students analytical and research skills and supporting their development as researchers and advocates for broader social change.
Dr Sam Halvorsen, Director of Graduate Studies
Our research students work under the close supervision of members of academic staff who are experts in their fields. You will meet regularly with your supervisory team throughout your PhD.
Your supervisors support you in the development of your thesis and in managing your progress through to completion (94% of our PGR students complete on time). Supervisors will also guide you in your professional development.
The School’s research excellence and commitment to its postgraduate studies is reflected in the large number of RCUK funded students that make up our PGR community. These include AHRC, ESRC and NERC studentships.
We are part of the London Interdisciplinary Social Science Doctoral Training Partnership (LISS DTP), the London NERC Doctoral Training Partnership and are associate members of the London Arts and Humanities Partnership.
