Visiting Research Student

in Social Research Methods

We welcome applications that complement the academic interests of faculty members in the Department and we recommend that you investigate their research interests before applying.

This scheme allows research students at other universities to spend up to one academic session at the School. Registration as a visiting research student in the Department of Methodology is for research and doctoral students registered at overseas universities wishing to undertake some aspect of their research in the UK.

The application procedure is to apply for the MPhil/PhD, as detailed in the Graduate Prospectus, but to use the application code for visiting status - L3EH: Visiting Research Student in Methodology. You should provide, as part of your application, a written proposal of no more than 1500 words, which gives details of your proposed research question(s), the relevant literature and previous research in the field, planned research methods and theoretical/conceptual framework to be adopted. This will enable us to make an informed decision about your proposal and is equally important to establish if there are appropriate supervisors for your planned research.
