About

Throughout this Politics PhD programme from Newcastle University you'll benefit from a supportive, stimulating and challenging research environment.

Overview

Within the Politics PhD programme from Newcastle University you'll receive training on how to become an independent researcher. You'll be supported by a supervisory team of at least two members of our research staff who will guide you through the research process. Your supervisors will also play a key role in helping you develop a thesis project that will open job opportunities in academia or outside of academia depending on your goals.

You will be able to take part in the Researcher Education and Development. This is an advanced and interdisciplinary research training and researcher development programme created by the Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences.

You'll also have the opportunity to enrol in the Postgraduate Certificate in Research Training. This provides a broader knowledge of different research methodologies. It equips you with the skills to carry out advanced research in your area of interest.

We offer you excellent supervision for your Politics PhD in a vibrant and supportive research environment.

The PhD students form part of the Politics Postgraduate Society, which organises:

  • the 'New Voices' seminar series, with both internal and external presenters
  • roundtable discussions on topical issues
  • professional development workshops led by politics staff or experts from other universities, if needed.

You are encouraged to attend conferences to present papers, partial funding for this is available from the Geography, Politics and Sociology School.
