Whatever your field of interest in relation to the environment – whether in the natural or social sciences – the size and scope of the Graduate School for the Environment means that you are guaranteed to find a suitably stimulating research project to work on.
As a PhD student, you will immediately become a valued member of a research group, each of which is headed up by one of our internationally respected academics and supported by an array of post-doctoral research associates and technicians.
You will make your personal contribution to the group – and be taught the research skills you need – under the guidance of one or more supervisors specifically chosen to suit your area of interest. It is with the support of your supervisors and your research group colleagues that you will be able to extract full value from your time at the Graduate School.
We also offer a range of industry-focused PhDs, in which you get to work in partnership with a particular business, learning practical real-world skills as well as cutting-edge academic research techniques. These may be fully funded within the Centre for Global Eco-Innovation.
Our research community is made up of a series of groups set up to address specific areas of environmental research.
