PhD in Property

The general PhD regulations require either a bachelors honours degree or masters degree for entry. Both the honours degree and the masters degree should have prepared the applicant with subject matter expertise and research skills including at least one significant research endeavour as part of the degree. For this reason, Masters of Business Administration (MBAs) and other general, applied degrees are often not seen as adequate preparation for PhD study, and transitional preparation may be required. Prior degree study should have been completed with distinction (generally at A- level or above) and have prepared the applicant in the discipline in which the research is proposed.

In terms of supervision, the disciplinary base of the department is broad and applicants are encouraged to check the research profiles of potential supervisors on the department website. Many staff have identified preferred areas of PhD and masters supervision to assist students' identification of research topics.
