Gender & Sexuality Studies MPhil/ PhD
Applicants with excellent qualifications in a relevant humanities or social science field are encouraged to send a research proposal to the convenor of the Gender & Sexuality Studies programme, Professor Ann Varley.
Your proposal, of 1,000-1,500 words, should address the following areas:
- your research aims and questions
- some discussion of existing scholarship on the subject
- a clear statement about your methodological approach
- if you wish, a provisional chapter outline.
All applicants must approach the convenor of the Gender and Sexuality Studies programme, Ann Varley, with their proposals before applying. Applications which are received without the agreement of the convenor will not be considered.
We normally expect PhD applicants to have a First or very high Upper Second in their first degree (or equivalent) and a Distinction or indication of distinction-level work at Masters level (or equivalent). All PhD applicants should present a convincing, well-argued and carefully formulated proposal and should have excellent standards of academic English.
PhD candidates can choose Gender Studies or Sexuality Studies as the field of study to appear on statements confirming the degree award; other options may also be possible.
For those candidates planning to apply for funding, initial contact should be made in October or November where the deadline for funding is January. For further information about funding, please see the CMII funding pages.
