School of Education Postgraduate Research Opportunities
Explore fascinating postgraduate research opportunities in the School Education at Liverpool John Moores University. Undertake world class research and lead the debate on the future of education.
Your programme route will depend on your qualifications and experience. Most students complete their PhD via progression from MPhil. The University offers a comprehensive induction programme and a varied programme of generic skills training opportunities.
You will be allocated up to three supervisors (including a Director of Studies) who will work with you during your research. Throughout your studies, you will also have the support of LJMU's Graduate School which offers expert advice and guidance to those enrolled on MPhil and PhD programmes.
You will be based at the IM Marsh campus in the leafy suburb of Aigburth, just four miles from the city centre. Here you will have your own desk and computer in office space shared with other research students, enabling you to build up a strong peer network.
If you are applying for an MPhil or an MPhil/PhD you should normally have, or be expecting to obtain, a first or upper second-class Honours degree in a relevant subject. If you are applying for a PhD direct you must: have a Masters degree with a research dissertation in a relevant subject; have had research training directly related to the PhD project. If you have qualifications other than those above, your application will be considered individually on merit. Appropriate research and previous experience will be taken into account.
