PhD in Child and Youth Research


The Structured PhD in Child and Youth Research is a joint initiave between the UNESCO Child and Family Research Centre, the School of Political Science and Sociology & the school of Psychology.

The structured PhD in Child and Youth Research aims to:

  1. Prepare graduates to conduct advanced policy and practice-relevant research and programme evaluation with children and young people.
  2. Develop participants’ knowledge and skills in key theoretical, methodological, policy and practice areas relating to children.
  3. Provide graduates with the set of generic work-skills to facilitate their successful entry into a range of employment settings. 

This interdisciplinary programme responds to an identified need for researchers with the requisite, high-level and wide-ranging experience and skills to undertake the kind of work that is needed in an evidence-informed policy environment.
