Program Description:

The School of Social Policy, Sociology and Social Research (SSPSSR) has a long and distinguished history, and is one of the largest and most successful social science research communities in Europe. It has received top ratings in Research Assessment Exercises, and most recently had 70% of its work judged as either ‘world-leading’ or ‘internationally excellent’ in terms of its “originality, significance and rigour”. The School supports a large and thriving postgraduate community and in 2010 distributed in excess of £100,000 in Economic and Social Research Council (ESRC) quota awards, and in University and SSPSSR bursaries and scholarships to new students. Within the School, there is a breadth and depth of expertise and we can offer high-quality supervision across a wide range of social and public policy areas. There are further details on the research activities and publications of individual members of staff and the School’s research units on the website. In addition to regular meetings with individual supervisors, all research students take a research training programme
