As a postgraduate student in the Anthropology programme from The University of Exeter, you will be able to pursue your work within a friendly and informal atmosphere.


Our research culture is characterised by our commitment to foster thinking and analysis that crosses over traditional academic boundaries (such as between philosophy-sociology-anthropology as well as social sciences-life sciences).  The research culture for postgraduate students reflects this spirit. 


The Anthropology programme from The University of Exeter prides itself on providing an environment for students that will expose you to a wide range of intellectual influences and exciting ideas.  

PhD students are also part of the wider College of Social Sciences and International Studies Graduate Research School and have opportunity to meet with students and staff from other disciplines. The Graduate Research School team also provides a friendly point of contact for any queries you might have about the application process, orientation or life within the School.
