About this program
Tourism - MPhil/PhD
Doctoral candidates pursue original research with the goal of making a significant contribution to knowledge in, and understanding of, their chosen field. As a postgraduate researcher you can become an integral part of our research community, working with leading academics whose research has gone on to impact business, policy, and society on an international scale.
There is an emphasis on your own independent critical investigation, supervised by an experienced team of academics. You can benefit from an active research community in the School, and research groups with which to align your study.
As a research student, you will have access to a structured Program of training supported by our Doctoral School. This aims to assist you in the development of the practical and critical skills which are necessary for this Program and are transferable to your career. There may be opportunities to participate in undergraduate teaching following relevant training.
Normally candidates should hold a 2:1 honours degree, or international equivalent in a relevant subject. You should also hold a Master's Degree, or international equivalent, at merit or above.
While academic credentials are important for a successful application we also pay great attention to the fit of students to both the Program and the research interests of our academic team. Applicants are assessed based on their previous academic performance, the quality of their research proposal, and the availability of suitable members of staff to supervise the chosen research topic.
If you would like to undertake a PhD, but do not currently have a Master's Degree (or equivalent) in a relevant subject, you may want to consider studying one of our Master's Program.
International students will require English Language at IELTS 6.5 with no less than 6.0 in each element, or equivalent.
