Published: 14 February 2013

The Southampton Law School has studentships available for postgraduate research students admitted onto its MPhil/PhD programme and commencing their studies in October 2013. The studentships will last for a maximum of three years (subject to an annual review of progress) and will provide a maintenance allowance, in addition to payment of tuition fees at the home/EU level.

The awards are available in any area of research within the School:

  • Information Technology Law
  • Health Ethics and Law
  • European Law
  • Law, Ethics and Globalisation
  • Insurance Law
  • Maritime and Commercial Law
  • Property, Equity and Land Law
  • Criminal Justice and Crime Analysis

For further information on our research check the School’s website .
In addition to pursuing MPhil/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 per cent of research output rated at international level and above; we also have consistently enjoyed a high ranking in the annual National Student Survey. We have a growing and active community of postgraduate researchers contributing to the School’s knowledge base.

Applicants must apply for admission to the MPhil/PhD programme, stating that they wish to be considered for the studentship, by Friday 8 March.
