Postgraduate Admissions

Teaching

One to one supervision

The University of Cambridge publishes an annual Code of Practice which sets out the University’s expectations regarding supervision.

Feedback

Students can expect to receive an online feedback report each term.

Assessment

Thesis / Dissertation

The maximum length for the thesis is 80,000 words.

Other

In the third term (the fifth term for part-time students) students will submit a report of 10,000 words and have an oral assessment based on the report to confirm that satisfactory progress has been made – full registration for the PhD is subject to successfully completing this assessment.

Students are required to complete at least once per year a training and progress log recording details of any training sessions they have undertaken and noting their progress to date. The Department offers some in-house research training and advice sessions for PhD students and also encourages students to make full use of the training opportunities available via the University's Social Sciences Research Methods Centre.
