Essential information

School Contacts

All Schools have an appointed Director of Doctoral Programmes (DDP), they will take overall responsibility for recruitment, admissions, induction, training, and progression from one part to another. They should be your first point of contact if you have a complaint and will be able to provide guidance on the University regulations.  The DDP is supported by a team of administrators and sometimes deputy DDPs.
