Benefiting from the expertise and considerable experience of the Department’s staff, our thriving community of postgraduate research students are provided with an intellectually challenging and rewarding experience during their time with us.

Most of our postgraduate research students are registered on a PhD programme of study (typically 3 years full-time duration) although a small number opt for an MPhil programme (typically 2 years full-time duration). Prospective students who would like to undertake research study on a part-time basis e.g. those working in industry are also very welcome to apply.

Please browse our research areas pages to get a flavour of the ongoing research carried out by our postgraduate students. If you are interested in working with a particular member of staff as part of your postgraduate research study, please contact the academic directly. The profiles of our research students tell you more about what you can expect from us as a research student.

Our academic staff are very pleased to help prospective students develop their research proposals as part of their application process. We are also very happy for prospective research students to visit the Department to see the facilities and to meet academic staff and research students. You may also like to look at our Current PhD Opportunities.
