Research Degrees

Research degrees in human rights are offered by Institutes across the School.

The Institute of Commonwealth Studies has been supervising interdisciplinary doctoral degrees for a half-century, focusing increasingly on the Social Sciences, especially relating to Human Rights, Globalisation and Development, Politics, and Commonwealth History. 

Doctoral research supervision at the Institute of Modern Languages Research is available in topics including Exile Writing, Gender and Sexuality and Memory Studies. The Institute's research strength lies in its combination of the study of several language fields: French, German, Italian, Spanish and Portuguese. The Institute is particularly well placed to offer supervision for projects that cross national and disciplinary boundaries.

The Institute of Advanced Legal Studies offers doctoral research supervision in the area of Human Rights Law.
