York St John University is committed to providing
excellence in academic practice and offers a wide
range of research opportunities. We provide a wealth
of expertise and a
supportive and stimulating environment in which to
conduct your studies. The University has a vibrant and
developing research community, with research students working in,
and across, a variety of disciplines.
The University is committed to providing excellence in academic
practice together with a supportive and stimulating environment in
which to conduct your studies. This is characterised by:
- Excellent supervision by one or more Supervisors
- A dedicated Graduate Centre providing research students
with space for studying and socialising
- Access to research networks
- Possibilities for supervised involvement in teaching
- Relevant training in both research and teaching
- Access to appropriate facilities to support research
All research qualifications awarded are degrees of the University
of Leeds and are therefore subject to the relevant Ordinances and
Regulations of the University of Leeds. Reference can
also be made to the Postgraduate
Research Student Protocol which sets out the arrangements under
which York St John is able to offer these degrees.
The University is currently applying for Research Degree
Awarding Powers. If the University’s application is successful,
applicants for research degrees starting during 2015 will be
admitted to study for a York St John University degree, rather than
a University of Leeds degree, as at present.
We accept new research students on the 1 of
October, February or June each year. We strongly recommend
that applicants make their applications as early as possible (and
at least three months before their preferred start date).
