Applications are welcomed for PhD and MPhil degrees in any of our main areas of research.
Postgraduate research students are directly involved in the mainstream research of the Faculty. In addition to receiving specialised training relevant to your research topic and methodology you will be encouraged to take part in the graduate training programme. This programme offers a range of more generic courses such as teaching skills, statistical methods, computing and languages. You will also be encouraged to attend and present lectures and posters at conferences overseas and within the UK.
The degree is examined by submission of a thesis (max 80,000 words) and a viva voce examination.
