Finding a supervisor
We are also one of the largest centres for sociology in Britain with 27 academic staff and over 80 postgraduate students.
This rich culture means that you will benefit from a wide variety of choice when choosing your research area and the supervisors who will support you.
We allocate at least two supervisors to each student in order to cover sufficient specialism and a variety of skills and expertise within a student’s research project.
