Course content

A member of staff, expert in the chosen field, is directly responsible for guiding and supporting your research programme. As a research student you'll become part of our thriving academic community.

A PhD, by definition, is an original contribution to knowledge. A research degree is different from a taught course. Research students are expected to self-direct their learning with support from a supervisory team. The teaching and learning style at PhD level takes the form of 1:1 supervision, e-learning and workshops.

Research Excellence Framework (REF) score

60% of our research was awarded 3* out of 4*, 85% of submitted publications to be internationally recognised, internationally excellent or world leading.

Information for international students

If English is not your first language you will be required to prove your competency in English, showing an IELTS score of at least 7.0 at postgraduate level.
