Postgraduate research in the Faculty of Social Sciences
Supporting you in your studies
Through our research courses, we’re well placed to support you if you want to make a difference in the world.
Your academic supervisors and tutor
We’ll ensure that you’re teamed with two academic supervisors who cover your research specialism and can offer expertise.
You’ll have the opportunity to join a supportive cohort group run by fellow doctoral researchers.
Developing your skills
We offer you a wide range of opportunities to organise and attend seminars, workshops, reading and study groups. You can get involved with our weekly seminars and present your emerging work to peers and staff in an informal and friendly environment. This gives you the ideal space to prepare for conferences, obtain feedback and advice, and develop your presentation skills.
We also have annual events including our Postgraduate Training Week, Postgraduate Symposium and Doctoral conference. The Scottish Graduate School of Social Sciences also delivers advanced training and summer school programmes.
