Published: 31 October 2012

The Southampton Law School has one Studentship available for a postgraduate research student admitted onto its M.Phil/PhD programme and commencing their studies in December 2012. The studentship 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 award is for a project within the School’s Institute for Law and the Web (ILAWS). It must relate to legal issues of the web with a specific focus on one or more of the following: privacy; data protection; the regulatory framework; internet intermediary liability.

For further information on the work of ILAWS, check the Law School's website.

In addition to pursuing M.Phil/PhD study on a full time basis, the recipient 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 ILAWS (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 check research degrees pages on the School's website.

Applicants must apply for admission to the M.Phil/PhD programme, stating that they wish to be considered for the studentship, by Thursday 15 November .
