About

The PhD is a higher degree awarded for a thesis presenting original research that makes a publishable contribution to knowledge or understanding. This Human Geography and Environment (Distance Learning) programme is offered by University of York.

Overview

Key Features

Rated second in the UK and 17th in the world for the impact of our research, the Department of Environment and Geography at the University of York offers an outstanding, dynamic and multidisciplinary environment in which to carry out PhD research. Our current PhD students come from many countries around the world and are funded via research councils, charities, industry, government grants, and private resources.

A student of the Human Geography and Environment (Distance Learning) programme from University of York will be working on their own research project, working closely with their academic supervisor and with the support of other postgraduate students, postdoctoral researchers and staff in their research group.

Use the find a supervisor tool to search for a PhD supervisor with expertise in a particular area or staff profiles to view individuals’ research interests. We particularly welcome applications that connect with our research themes and groups.

You should contact potential supervisors early on. They will be happy to give you advice on the feasibility of your research ideas and offer feedback on a draft proposal. For each academic year, we also offer a number of funded studentships to exceptional applicants. Please see the funding section and the list of current PhD projects for more information.

The Stockholm Environment Institute (SEI), a leading global environmental policy institute, has one of its largest centres embedded within the Department of Environment and Geography. This unique arrangement allows postgraduate researchers to gain a research degree from the department, while simultaneously benefiting from SEI’s strong links to global policy makers such as UNEP and the World Health Organisation, and international connections with other SEI centres in Stockholm, Bangkok, Nairobi, Oxford, Tallinn, Bogota, and offices in the US.
