Chris Keith has outlined some of the possibilities involved in doing a PhD with either himself, Steve Walton, or me at the Centre for the Social-Scientific Study of the Bible at St Mary’s University, Twickenham, London. This includes both residential and non-residential. Chris writes:
We support both full-time and part-time PhD students, as well as residential and non-residential students. There is, actually, a development at St Mary’s with regard to non-residential students. For some students, it may be possible to do what we are calling the “St Mary’s Model” for non-residential PhD students. Essentially, it would involve a combination of the student coming to London at least once per year, a supervisor coming to see the student in his or her town at least once per year, and meeting together at various conferences and through Skype, etc., at least once per month. It’s a combination of you coming to St Mary’s and St Mary’s coming to you, all of which reflects the international nature of global higher ed. If you’re interested in applying for this type of non-residential PhD program, get in touch with us also. Just to be clear, there are very few positions available for this type of arrangement so we will have to be selective. If you would have interest, however, we would love to hear from you!
