We offer a progressive environment for research degree study. Our academic staff supervise across a wide range of research areas and our research examines the meaning of justice in the UK and beyond.
Our staff work with governments, human rights organisations and businesses across the world. Your supervisors support you with a perspective that is global, comparative and grounded in practical experience.
As a doctoral student you are part of our active and diverse research community and have frequent opportunities to engage with the latest research among colleagues and staff. You can join one of our three research clusters:
You can also attend conferences and other research events organised by our School and the Human Rights Centre. Our PhD students organise their own annual conference. Getting involved gives you the opportunity to present and discuss your research among peers and academic staff.
If you are working in the area of human rights, you can link up with fellow researchers across our university and at other institutions by joining our Human Rights Triangle and Doctoral Affiliates Network.
