About Criminology postgraduate research degrees, PhD - at University of Hull

By choosing Criminology as a postgraduate at Hull you will be joining a vibrant and supportive research community covering a wide range of specialisms, from the links between alcohol and violence and the history of crime and punishment to surveillance, green crime, and restorative justice approaches - among others. If you choose to study a PhD, you will find that we combine research expertise and cutting-edge facilities to deliver a unique experience.

We regard our research students as key participants in our scholarly community and they play an active role in fostering academic debate and developments in our fields of study. In addition to working alongside their supervisors, research students are given opportunities at each stage of the process to present and discuss their own and other's work in a supportive and collegial environment through the weekly postgraduate workshop, the research luncheon and various senior research seminars and workshops.

We provide a full range of research training opportunities within the School and through the University's Postgraduate Training Scheme. The School also offers a limited number of partial bursaries for which research students are able to apply for funding to attend and host workshops and conferences. All of our research students have access to desk space, computers and other facilities in the school and through the Graduate School. We have an excellent track record in seeing our students through to successful completion and our students have gone on to rewarding careers both within and outside of academia.

Criminological research, supported by a dedicated Centre for Criminology and Criminal Justice, has built on our strengths in evaluative criminal justice and penological research while developing an increasing focus on the research questions posed by new forms of surveillance, terrorism, information and communication technologies, and the transnational agenda in criminology.

Intending research students are expected to have relevant prior research training at postgraduate level (for PhD) or undergraduate level (for MRes or MPhil) or international equivalent.

Your research proposal should clearly set out your research questions, the kind of empirical research you visualise, the reasons why you wish to undertake the research and a general indication of the theoretical background and approach.

Selection is based on the strength and viability of your research proposal and the school's ability to provide supervision in your proposed research area, amongst other factors.
