We’ve come to the end of our Q&A session today. Thank you very much to everyone who took part – I hope we managed to be of assistance and provide the information that you were looking for.
We will hold many more of these virtual open day events over the coming months so please check www.pg.bham.ac.uk now and again to see what we’ve got lined up for the future. If you’d like to visit our campus (in real life!), our next Postgraduate Open Day will take place on Saturday 23 November 2019. We also run bespoke campus tours throughout term time and Cafés at which you can meet current students.
Alright, that is great. I would love to also explore the combined Masters & PhD as well. My undergrad is Bsc. Administration (Accounting) with a strong second class upper Honours! Could you share with me the research interests of your current PhD supervisors at the school of Government and Society?

With a CGPA of 3.81 in an undergraduate course, can I apply straight to a PhD study
We would normally require a Masters degree to qualify for entry to a PhD programme. However there are routes to combine Masters and PhD so it is not out of the question. You can find further information about the process here https://www.birmingham.ac.uk/Documents/college-social-sciences/government-society/courses/phd-guidance-for-applying.pdf
I have a Master of Public Administration (Policy & Governance) from Ghana. What are my chances of gaining admission for a PhD in the school of Government and Society?
Hi. Your credentials seem appropriate. The key consideration for a PhD application is your research topic, your submitted proposal and your references. The first step is to identify potential supervisors from the departmental website, and submit a proposal for review via the PhD application page.
