SKAPE is committed to helping lead and shape the emerging field of knowledge and policy studies. SKAPE members have designed and contribute to a range of teaching at UG level, while also being passionate about supervising and mentoring PhD students at PG level – we welcome any scholar with an interest in SKAPE research at all career stages.

Postgraduate opportunities: PhD applications and support

We have a thriving community of PhD students associated with SKAPE. At SKAPE, we are keen to integrate PhD students wholly into the life of the centre. We offer opportunities to present work at our research seminars, to contribute ideas for visiting speakers, to help instigate and organise workshops.

If you are interested in applying to study for a PhD that fits into one of our research themes, please contact us. At SKAPE, we would be more than happy to explore PhD proposals, identify suitable supervisors, and explore funding opportunities for exceptional candidates.
