How You Study

Research is an essential component of the School’s activity and it is committed to maintaining an infrastructure and intellectually stimulating environment that supports the development of the next generation of researchers.

In addition to subject-specific support from a supervisory team, you can benefit from a tailored programme of research training that allows you the opportunity to build on your existing knowledge and acquire the advanced skills and expertise needed to achieve your career aspirations.

Due to the nature of postgraduate research programmes, the vast majority of your time will be spent in independent study and research. You will have meetings with your academic supervisor, however the regularity of these may vary depending on your own individual requirements, subject area, staff availability and the stage of your programme.

How You Are Assessed

All programmes require the presentation of a thesis and an oral examination.

How To Apply

Enrolment Dates

To support your experience within the postgraduate research community, new students are encouraged to enrol in October, February or May.

In addition to meeting peers across the University who are starting their research programme at the same time, there is access to a central training programme designed around the first three months of study, and targeted support aligned to each stage of the postgraduate research journey. Alternative enrolment dates may be agreed with your supervisor on an individual basis.

Entry Requirements

2:1 honours degree in a related subject.

However, all applications are considered on the individual basis of work and other life experiences through the University's Accreditation of Prior Experience Learning procedures.
