MRes/PhD programme

The department has established a vibrant research students' programme with students employing a variety of disciplinary and interdisciplinary approaches to research across Asia, Africa, Latin America and the Middle East. The MRes programme is designed to both train students in a common academic heritage and to provide significant flexibility to develop advanced methodological and theoretical skills within disciplinary specialisms appropriate to their research interests.
