Course content

We have a thriving doctoral research community made up of full-time and part-time UK, EU, and international students. Through the impact of our research we strive to make a substantive contribution to academia, society, and the economy.

Studying for a doctorate offers a unique opportunity for self-discovery and personal growth. As a doctoral researcher, you will be responsible for managing your own schedule and developing your own ideas and approach, while being supported every step of the way.

The aim of a PhD is to make a novel contribution to knowledge and to discover something that no-one else has done before. You may have already identified the research area which interests you, in which case you will need to see if this is something we specialise in.
