Graduate Research Projects

Unfortunately, Andrew has a full quota of research students and is unlikely to be able to commit to any incoming postgraduates for 2009/10. However, in exceptional circumstances, or where supervisory duties may be shared with another member of staff, he would be prepared to consider applications from well-qualified applicants to work on urban topics.
