PhD studentship in Human Geography at the University of Leicester, UK, 2012.

PhD studentship in Human Geography at the Department of Geography for the students of  UK/EU and International students at the University of Leicester, UK, 2012. Internationalisation of British Higher Education and Social Media: Academic Identities, Transnational Socialisation, and Engaged Pedagogic Practice.

Study Subject(s): Human Geography Course Level: PhD

Eligibility: Applicants must have a first-class or high upper second-class honours degree (or equivalent qualification) in geography or a social science discipline relevant to the project (such as media studies or education) and meet the University’s standard English language entry requirements.

Scholarship Application Deadline: 03 August 2012

This research studentship will examine the variegated pedagogic uses of social media by a differentiated group of international students in the British Higher Education sector. Although the research will focus on one specific institution (and as such it will be a case study of a specific set of students in a specific place at a particular point in time), it will extend the analysis ‘outwards’ from this place to broader national and international policies and linkages. The successful applicant will use a variety of social science research techniques and internet mediated research methods which might include online surveys, face-to-face and online interviewing, ethnography/netnography and secondary data analysis.
