Warsaw & Lancaster PhD diplomas-not recruiting in 2017-18
Building on the very successful collaboration with the Institute for Sociology and Philosophy at the Polish Academy of Science (IFIS PAN), that offers students completing postgraduate programmes in IFiS PAN the possibility of being awarded a Lancaster University MA degree, a new collaboration has been available since October 2010 – a Dual PhD. Under this programme of study, a single thesis that has been researched and supervised in both institutions may, after its successful examination in accordance with their regulations, be awarded a doctorate by each.
If you have achieved a Masters level qualification in sociology or a related discipline and are able to demonstrate your capacity to study to a high standard in English, you are invited to apply to the Dual PhD programme through the Department of Sociology at Lancaster and the Graduate School for Social Research at IFIS PAN. The normal period of study for the PhD will be between three and four years and will require periods of residence in both Warsaw and Lancaster to work with supervisors from both institutions. Students on this unusual programme will have the opportunity to join in the intellectual life of these two world-class academic institutions and work with scholars of the highest standard.
Students from the European Union enrolled on the Dual PhD programme will pay fees at Lancaster of GBP 1100 per year for their three years of full-time study.
If you wish to Join the Dual PhD programme you should first be accepted to the MA or PhD programmes of the GSSR. During your first year of study at the GSSR you will be assisted to apply for a further three years’ study in the Dual PhD programme .
