M.Phil/PhD Studentship in the Law School

Published: 16 May 2012

The Southampton Law School has four Studentships available for postgraduate research students admitted onto its M.Phil/PhD programme and commencing their studies in October 2012. The studentships will last for a maximum of three years (subject to an annual review of progress) and will provide a maintenance allowance of £9,700, in addition to payment of tuition fees at the home/EU level.

The awards are available in any area of research connected to one of the School’s research centres:

  • Centre for European Law
  • Centre for Law, Ethics and Globalisation
  • Health Ethics and Law Network
  • Institute of Criminal Justice
  • Institute for Law and the Web
  • Institute of Maritime Law
  • Insurance Law Group

For further information on the work of these Centres .

In addition to pursuing M.Phil/PhD study on a full time basis, recipients of the award will be required to undertake up to 80 hours of teaching per year on the School’s taught degree programmes or to provide research-related administrative support to their research Centre (at the discretion of the Head of School).
Please note: fees will be paid by the School at home/EU level only. International applicants will be required to meet the difference between the international and home/EU fees.

The Southampton Law School is a vibrant, research-led department. In the 2008 RAE we were one of only eleven Law schools to have 95% of research output rated at international level and above. Receiving an “overwhelmingly positive” report on our teaching provision in the most recent Developmental Engagement, we have also consistently enjoyed a high ranking in the annual National Student Survey. The School has a growing and active community of postgraduate research students whose research extends to all areas of the School’s expertise. For further information on our research degrees, including profiles of current students and the application process, see:
