We emphasise the importance of the relationship between you and your supervisor: we ‘match’ you with a supervisor whose current active research interests and expertise are compatible with your chosen topic of research.

The Sociology MPhil/PhD programme is recognised by the ESRC for excellence in research training.

Assessment

Thesis and viva voce.


Application procedure and requirements

You can apply directly to Goldsmiths via the website by clicking the ‘apply now’ button on the main programme page.

Before submitting your application you will need to have: 

  • Details of your education history, including the dates of all exams/assessments;
  • The email address of your referee who we can request a reference from, or alternatively an electronic copy of your academic reference;
  • Contact details of a second referee;
  • A personal statement. This can either be uploaded as a Word Document or PDF, or completed online;
  • If available, an electronic copy of your educational transcript (this is particularly important if you have studied outside of the UK, but isn’t mandatory);
  • A copy of your C.V;
  • Details of your research proposal.

You'll be able to save your progress at any point and return to your application by logging in using your username/email and password.

Before you apply for a research programme, we advise you to contact the Postgraduate Research Officer, Sociology. It may also be possible to arrange an advisory meeting.

Before you start at Goldsmiths, the actual topic of your research has to be agreed with your proposed supervisor, who will be a member of staff active in your general field of research. The choice of topic may be influenced by the current research in the department or the requirements of an external funding body. You should look at the staff research interests to see if we are the right department for you and whether there is a member if staff who may match your research interests.

If you wish to study on a part-time basis, you should also indicate how many hours a week you intend to devote to research, whether this will be at evenings or weekends, and for how many hours each day.

Research proposals 

Along with your application and academic reference, you should also upload a research proposal at the point of application. 

This should be in the form of a 1,500-3,000 word statement of the proposed area of research and should include: 

  • delineation of the research topic;
  • why it has been chosen;
  • an initial hypothesis (if applicable);
  • a brief list of major secondary sources;
  • The name of a staff member who you believe would be interested in acting as your supervisor.

When to apply 

We accept applications from October for students wanting to start the following September. 

We encourage you to complete your application as early as possible, even if you haven't finished your current programme of study. It's very common to be offered a place conditional on you achieving a particular qualification. 

If you're applying for external funding from one of the Research Councils, make sure you submit your application no later than 31 January.

Selection process 

Admission to many programmes is by interview, unless you live outside the UK. Occasionally we'll make candidates an offer of a place on the basis of their application and qualifications alone.

Entrance requirements

You should normally have (or expect to be awarded) a taught Masters in a relevant subject area. An MA covering methods of social research (for example, the MA in Social Research) would be a distinct advantage.

You might also be considered for some programmes if you aren’t a graduate or your degree is in an unrelated field, but have relevant experience and can show that you have the ability to work at postgraduate level. 

We also accept a wide range of international equivalent qualifications, which can be found on our country-specific pages. If you'd like more information, please contact the Admissions Office.

English language 

If your first language isn't English, you need to demonstrate the required level of English language competence to enrol on our programmes. 

Please check our English language requirements for more information.

Graduate Profile

Angelo

"The combination of supportive staff, weekly workshops/seminars and being a lively and friendly environment makes Goldsmiths an ideal place to learn and develop."

I'm really pleased that I took the decision to study at Goldsmiths. At an academic level, Goldsmiths has enabled me to develop my skills as a researcher as well as my career within the field. The combination of supportive staff, weekly workshops/seminars and being a lively and friendly environment makes Goldsmiths an ideal place to learn and develop.
 
On a personal level, the diversity that exists inside Goldsmiths has given me the opportunity to mix with different people. This has allowed me to learn more about different cultures within everyday practice.  
 
I've recently been approached by a publishing house to publish my Masters thesis, and my book – Lives in Motion: Notebooks of an Immigrant in London – will be published in Autumn 2013.

Hannah

"I have had many opportunities during my time here to work with colleagues on projects, conferences and publications both within the department and College and outside, even internationally."

I started my PhD as a part-time student at Goldsmiths, then moved to full-time status once I secured funding. My funding is a collaborative ESRC studentship, which means that I still have links with my former employer and can see ways that my research can be applied outside the academic environment. I think this is a strength of Goldsmiths’ Sociology Department, which feels to me to be very outward-looking and open to new ideas. Certainly I have had many opportunities during my time here to work with colleagues on projects, conferences and publications both within the department and College and outside, even internationally.

There have been many opportunities to try new things and test boundaries, which I really appreciate, and the large number of active research students really helps to counter the risk of isolation which sometimes comes with a research degree.

Richard

Richard has been at Goldsmiths for "quite a few years" (about 6!), having originally joined to do a Masters degree.

"How was the Goldsmiths experience? I got a feel for the place from my first month of teaching. Doing a PhD is like a voyage, and it has its ups and downs, but I'm really happy with what I produced. Now I've completed, I'm going to continue teaching here. I'm also looking to continue my research into children and HIV - which has previously been based in London - and get funding to do it on a global scale."

Francis, Lecturer in Sociology at the University of Westminster

MA in Gender, Media & Culture & PhD in Sociology graduate

"The teaching and support offered by the department was truly excellent."

Studying for the MA in Gender, Media & Culture at Goldsmiths has had a very profound and positive impact on my life, personally, politically and professionally. Having taken some gender studies classes as an undergraduate I was eager to develop my knowledge, and the range of options plus the opportunity for interdisciplinary study at Goldsmiths allowed me to do that. The teaching and support offered by the department was truly excellent, especially in terms of dissertation supervision. The work I did for that dissertation not only inspired me to get involved in feminist/queer cultural activism outside academia but also to pursue a PhD, which I completed at Goldsmiths in 2006.

Today I am a lecturer in Sociology at the University of Westminster where I lead several Gender Studies modules and strive to pass on the enthusiasm for a critical understanding of gender I encountered at Goldsmiths to a new generation of students.

Research in the Department of Sociology

Goldsmiths Sociology has a long track record of funded research, with research funded by UK research councils, British Academy, European Union, and charities including Leverhulme, Wellcome and Joseph Rowntree.  We are also in research collaboration with industry, local and national government and public bodies.
