Research Opportunities

We offer research opportunities in PhD, MPhil, MLitt and MSc Research programmes.

We also offer a professional Doctorate in Education (Research) (EdD).

The Master of Research (MRes) programmes have been designed to help you on the road to a research career in social sciences. They give you the skills to pursue a career in research in the public, private or academic sectors. They also provide ideal training for PhD research, and most are recognised by the Economic and Social Research Council (ESRC) for 1+3 funding.


We welcome enquiries and proposals from students wishing to pursue research in the areas of strength and interest of our Schools. 

You can see more about research areas on the School websites:

You can also use the University of Glasgow staff research interests search to find potential supervisors in your research areas of interest.
