We attract students from all walks of life and this helps to create a vibrant and dynamic postgraduate research environment.
Research degrees offer you the flexibility to carry out your own research project under direct supervision of an academic member of staff. You can study towards a Master of Philosophy (MPhil), Doctor of Philosophy (PhD), Professional Doctorate (DProf) or MSc by Research.
Our students have access to a wide range of supervisory expertise, training and excellent facilities. The research training you receive will be tailored to your particular needs, which your supervisory team will discuss with you as soon as possible after you arrive.
Our current students undertake research across a variety of topic areas from acoustics, engineering, robotics and computer science to materials and physics.
If you are interested in applying for the doctoral programme, first of all contact the relevant Research Group Lead to discuss your proposed research topic and to identify a Supervisor. You would also need to prepare a Research Proposal (approximately 1500 words) before you apply online.
