Postgraduate research

We are home to over 120 postgraduate research (PGR) students and offer various routes to PhD, including full and part time traditional PhD programmes, a Professional Doctorate Programme, an online Doctorate, PhD by Published works, and Masters by Research.  We offer excellent supervision, a specialised research training programme and a flexible and supportive PGR environment to help you study full time, part time or at a distance from the University.  Our supervisors cover a wide range of topic areas and methods, and further support is offered by integrating the PGR community into our research intensive teams.

Our postgraduate students are also firmly part of our research community and often get the opportunity to work on a range of projects while they study in order to build a rounded research profile.  Meet some of our past and current students here.

We encourage prospective students to contact us so that we can put them in touch with specialist staff with who they can explore their research ideas and the opportunities we offer.
