Postgraduate research

We are committed to undertaking research that engages with contemporary issues across journalism, the media and culture both theoretically and practically.

ESRC Wales DTP studentships

Supported by the ESRC Doctoral Training Partnership for Wales, we invite applications for PhD study in the area of journalism and democracy, with the possibility of being awarded a fully-funded ESRC DTP Studentship. Deadlines for this studentship are advertised around late November / December and full details will be posted on our PhD studentships and projects page.

Our research environment

A key strength of our research environment is the dialogue between research and practice-based staff which helps us to deliver impactful research outcomes in terms of practice and policy in the wider world.

Our overarching PhD/MPhil programme of Journalism, Media and Culture covers all projects that we supervise within any of the fields of journalism, media and cultural studies. We particularly invite applications for PhD or MPhil projects that fall within one or more of our research clusters.

However, we will also consider applications for projects that do not fit entirely within these parameters.

You will have the opportunity to make an indelible mark on academia and we are committed to help you reach your fullest potential, with the assistance of our expert research supervisors and the academic, technical and personal support provided by our experienced staff.

We provide training and a high level of support, and the postgraduate community contributes vitally to the University's international reputation for research.
