The School warmly welcomes all enquiries regarding PhD research in Planning. It is possible to apply for a place to study towards a PhD at any time. We are delighted to receive applications from international/non-EEA students.
How to apply?
There are two possible routes to devising a suitable PhD topic. The first is to construct a proposal in consultation with a potential supervisor based in the School (you will need to make contact with a potential supervisor before you apply); the second is to apply for an advertised staff-driven proposal. Potential supervisors are listed below and can also be found on our staff pages: www.qub.ac.uk/schools/NBE/Staff/
You can also search the University's Find a PhD Supervisor database www.qub.ac.uk/Study/PostgraduateStudy/Postgraduate-research/find-phd-supervisor/
