The Law School has an active and supportive student community, with excellent dedicated postgraduate facilities. Students are usually allocated two supervisors, who give guidance about the nature of the research, the standard of work required, and about the relevant literature and sources that should be consulted. Students and supervisors meet monthly, ensuring consistent and continuous support during the length of the Law (by Research) programme at University of Kent.
We welcome applications for research degrees in a wide range of areas (this post on our Countercurrents blog helps offer an insight into the diverse aspects of the law our scholars choose to interrogate). You should accompany your application with a proposal of up to 10 pages including an outline of the research project you envisage, your proposed research questions, your intended methodology, an indicative bibliography, and a brief explanation of what your project will add to this literature.
Employability is a key focus throughout the University and at Kent Law School you have the support of a dedicated Employability and Career Development Officer together with a broad choice of work placement opportunities, employability events and careers talks. Details of graduate internship schemes with NGOs, charities and other professional organisations are made available to postgraduate students via the School’s Employability Blog.
