Applications for the part-time DPhil in Criminology are currently being considered. The closing date is noon on 24th July 2015.
The part-time DPhil programme follows the same broad structure as the full-time programme, with submission of the completed thesis within eight years. Part-time DPhil students spend their first two years as a probationary research student, before transferring to DPhil status following the ‘qualifying test’. A regular seminar series and research methods training are held on Thursdays during term time, and part-time students are encouraged to participate in the life of the Centre as fully as possible, by attending departmental seminars, joining discussion groups and research streams, and taking part in the intellectual and social life of the Centre. To maximise the value of their time in Oxford and to build effective working relationships with other students and academics, part-time students are expected to be present at the University for 30 days a year over the first six years of their programme.
Overseas Applicants: As this is a part-time, long-term course requiring weekly attendance during term time, students should only accept a place if they are, or will be, already resident in the UK in a capacity likely to last until the end of the course. Non-EU students will not be eligible to apply for a Tier 4 student visa, and neither is the Student Visitor category appropriate for the course. If a student accepts a place on the course, it is on the understanding that they are able to be resident in the UK, and it is their own responsibility to ensure that their visa will last for the duration of the course.
