We welcome applications from candidates with non-traditional backgrounds. We also invite enquiries about possibilities of doing a PhD with us if you wish to work part time, if you have childcare or other needs that mean you need to work flexibly. We recognise that applying for a PhD can be a challenging process, particularly where you might not have access to support from people familiar with the process to help you effectively put an application together. Please contact floodcdt@soton.ac.uk if you need extra support.
