"There is a sense of being part of a lively community of learning and of contributing to a fruitful research enterprise."

Main details

"I used to work full-time, 9 to 5, in Peckham Jobcentre Plus, and had done this for a few years, until my son was born: this gave me a chance to re-think my daily routine, and consider the important things in life. So I decided to enrol in a part-time MPhil & PhD in Visual Sociology, which could both upgrade my photographic skills and make me see life around me in a more meaningful way.

After that, at my own pace, I decided to continue the studies and enrolled on a part-time PhD in Visual Sociology. What I most like about it are the supportive environment, the feeling that you are valued as an individual, and the mix of tools, both theoretical and practical, that have been proposed to me. There is a sense of being part of a lively community of learning and of contributing to a fruitful research enterprise."
