Research degrees by department

World-class research takes place across all of our academic Schools. Each School has its own vibrant and inspiring community of research students and staff, who work on an incredible range of projects with real world impact. We have a large number of existing PhD opportunities available – both funded studentships and unfunded opportunities – which already have topics and supervisors assigned.

If you look through all of our existing projects and can't find one that suits you, you can develop your own research proposal, and find a prospective supervisor.
