Applicants are required to submit GRE general test scores. Completion of a master's degree in sociology or a closely related field at an institution of recognized standing is prerequisite to acceptance in the Ph.D. program. International students who are offered admission must provide evidence of adequate financial support for the duration of study here.
The living costs include the total expenses per month, covering accommodation, public transportation, utilities (electricity, internet), books and groceries.
The graduate field of Development Sociology accepts students on the basis of merit and compatibility of their interests with research and teaching in the field. At the time of admission, students admitted to the MS/PhD program are offered 5 years of support and students admitted to the PhD program are offered 4 years of support. Beyond that, students will be considered for additional years of support based on funding availability. Most students are funded by a combination of research assistantships, teaching assistantships, fellowships, and/or funds they raise themselves through competitive grants at one time or another in their graduate school careers.
Studyportals Tip: Students can search online for independent or external scholarships that can help fund their studies. Check the scholarships to see whether you are eligible to apply. Many scholarships are either merit-based or needs-based.
Together with the ISIC Association and British Council IELTS, Studyportals offers you the chance to receive up to £10000 to expand your horizon and study abroad. We want to ultimately encourage you to study abroad in order to experience and explore new countries, cultures and languages.
