The School of Geography and Planning is a major international centre for research in the areas of city and regional planning, human geography and urban design.

The Cardiff School of Planning and Geography is a major international centre for research in the areas of planning, environment, housing and spatial policy.

As a top-rated research school with the ambition to play a leading role in academic and policy debates at national and international levels, it aims to recruit committed research students for the pursuit of innovative, cutting-edge research at PhD level. With its international linkages and research profile, the School provides a rich and lively scholarly environment in which to conduct doctoral research work. At present there are around 30 full-time PhD students in the School.

A series of shared offices are available for PhD students and each full-time student has access to computer facilities. Research in the School is structured around the following broad themes:

  • Sustainable consumption and production systems
  • Poverty, social justice and entitlement
  • Regional, city-region and neighbourhood governance
  • Innovation and regeneration
  • Complexity, urban evolution and environmental systems
  • Pedagogy, knowledge and the built environment

These themes are explored at multiple scales (supra-national, national, regional and local), in urban and rural spaces, and across different sectors (such as housing, environment, labour markets). Research work at the School of Planning and Geography is organised into five main groups with a number of crosscutting research centres.

Some of these focus work within research groups and others operate across research group boundaries. Please see the School's research webpages for more information on the School's research interests.

We have been awarded ESRC recognition for 1+3 and +3 PhD programmes.

Thus, first-year PhD students can gain the opportunity to undertake a scheme of study directly related to research training in planning, environment and housing.

First year PhD students will be expected (depending upon prior learning and experience) to undertake some or all of the MSc in Social Science Research Methods. Distinct routes through the course in planning, housing, sustainability, transport and regeneration are available.

A series of shared offices are available for PhD students and each full-time student has access to computer facilities.

Gofynion Iaith Saesneg

The 2,000 word synopsis of the proposed research should include the following:

  • aims and purpose of the research
  • overview of the academic literature relevant to your field
  • proposed methodology
  • academic contributions of your research

This is to ensure, firstly, that the school has the necessary expertise to provide adequate supervision and, secondly, that the applicant has a researchable project in mind. Potential applicants are encouraged to identify at an early stage the degree of "fit" between their proposed research and the research interests of Planning and Geography staff.
