Communication and Media MPhil/PhD

Major code: CUPR


Entry requirements

 

The department offers postgraduate degrees, both taught and by thesis and has specific policies towards international students and those wishing to study part time. The department fully embraces the University’s Equal Opportunities strategy and works closely with the Student Welfare and Disability Team, the International Office and the English Language Support Unit, to provide appropriate facilities for students with additional needs including English language support and adaptive and assistive technologies. Students considering registering for a PhD are asked to produce a 1,000 word research proposal which should be sent to Dr Yannis Tzioumakis, the departmental Director of Postgraduate Research E:mccytzi1@liv.ac.uk.

This is then circulated to potential supervisors to determine if the project is viable and if there are staff with relevant subject expertise who could supervise the work. If the project fulfils both these requirements, applicants are then asked to apply online, ensuring that all required documentation is attached. Candidates wishing to be considered for registration onto one of our higher degrees should possess a good Honours degree (2:1 or equivalent)..

International Qualifications

Applications from international students are welcome. International qualifications will be evaluated in line with the National Recognition Information Centre (NARIC) guidelines.
