About

The PhD in Humanitarianism and Conflict Response offered by The University of Manchester is inspired by the need to conduct rigorous, in-depth research and analysis on the impact and outcomes of contemporary and historical crises.

Overview

About the program

 It is driven by a desire to inform and support policy and practice, to optimise joint working between partner organisations, and to foster increased understanding and debate within the field of humanitarianism and global health. 

We welcome applications from students wishing to study in the interdisciplinary research areas of global health, disaster response and humanitarian aid. 

The The University of Manchester PhD is a three-year Humanitarianism and Conflict Response course of study (or six years of part-time study) in which the student prepares a thesis under the guidance of two supervisors with specialist expertise. 

The student's progress is monitored at regular meetings of the student's research panel (two supervisors plus a reviewer who is independent of the supervisory team), which also provides guidance on research training and career development. 

The aim of the programme is to produce students who are fully-fledged independent researchers, and students are from the outset given encouragement to disseminate their work at seminars and conferences and by publishing in high-quality locations. 

The programme culminates in the submission of an 80,000-word dissertation (or alternative format) that makes an original contribution to knowledge.
