Current studentships

The School is currently inviting applications for PhD study, with the possibility of being awarded a fully-funded ESRC DTP Studentship, to start in October 2018.

Please note the deadline for applications is 1 February 2018.

Our overarching Phd/MPhil programme of Journalism Studies covers all projects that we supervise within any of the fields of journalism, media and cultural studies.

We particularly invite applications for PhD projects that fall within one or more of our five research groups. However, we will also consider applications for projects that do not fit entirely within these parameters.

Our five research groups are:

  • Digital Media and Society
  • Journalism and Democracy
  • Media, Culture and Creativity
  • Communication and Human Security
  • Science, Health and the Media

As a postgraduate research student, you will have the opportunity to make an indelible mark on academia surrounding global media and journalism issues. We are committed to helping you reach your fullest potential with the assistance of our expert research supervisors and the incredible academic, technical and personal support provided by our experienced staff.
