About the research cluster/about the research environment
The University of Hull Centre for Sustainability and Olympic Legacy (HCSOL) is an International Olympic Committee’s Olympic Studies Centre (IOC OSC) recognised Olympic Studies and Research Centre. The HCSOL investigates how the Olympics can be more environmentally and socially sustainable and exploring how the Olympics can leave a lasting legacy and contribute to a positive future for people, society and the environment. The focus of the Centre is defined by three C’s: Climate, Competitors, and Community; around which three dedicated PhD scholarships are funded. You will be joining an interdisciplinary team of experts across the University, as well as three PhD students who are in their second year of PhD working on Team GB specific projects around the same three key C’s.

Submission of your final thesis is expected within three years and three months from the start of your PhD scholarship for full time and within five years and six months if studying part-time.
