We foster a culture that values the diversity of all our communities and celebrate the excellence of our research, offering a welcoming and dynamic space for our researchers. We create a vibrant and inclusive learning and teaching environment grounded in our research community.

Through strategic partnerships, we influence and shape civic, cultural, and social life.

As a researcher, you’ll have the benefit of excellent academic supervision, professional equipment, and a range of specialist laboratories.

NTU Fully-funded PhD Studentship Scheme 2023

We are keen to encourage proposals that align with our research strengths within the School of Social Sciences, so ensure you are familiar with our research centres.  You can submit an application for one of our dedicated research projects. Alternatively, if you have your own idea for a PhD project, you can submit an application based on that proposal.  We would encourage you to speak to potential supervisors about your ideas.
