Why study Community and Youth Work at the Goldsmiths, University of London?
- Your supervisor helps you in the initial planning of your research, offering advice and suggestions as the project evolves, and maintaining regular contact through individual tutorials. Having discussed your needs with your supervisor, in the first year you undertake training to develop your research skills and techniques. You're responsible for maintaining progress according to your agreed plan of study, as outlined on your registration form, and at the end of the year you produce a formal progress report.
- Research can be an isolating process, so we give you the opportunity to participate in departmental research seminars and programmes of taught options, which enable you to meet other research students.
- You begin by registering as an MPhil student, while you undertake research training, develop your research skills, and complete the initial stages of your PhD. You can apply to upgrade to PhD registration when you have satisfactorily completed an agreed part of the research and training programme: usually after 18 months if you are studying full-time, or 24 months if you are studying part-time.
