We have a proud history of conducting research that tackles many of the key challenges we face as a society, and of finding solutions to these problems at an international and local level. Whichever field you choose, you can expect to be supervised by passionate, leading subject experts, and make a positive impact on local, regional, national and international businesses, charities, communities and governments.
The recruitment of exceptional postgraduate students from the UK and around the world is central to our research philosophy. Students are active across the range of research subgroups and are funded from a range of sources. Our research students have access to excellent research facilities; have dedicated study areas and are encouraged to present their work at national and international conferences.
We welcome UK and International applications for PhD, MPhil or Masters by Research study in one of our areas of expertise. You can study full or part time, on campus or remotely (depending on your area). If you're a professional with an existing body of work, you may be eligible for a PhD by Portfolio.
Postgraduate researchers are assigned a supervisory team who have the expertise and experience to support them in their studies. Supervisors will help you to shape your research project, give feedback on work in progress and guide you to completion.
When you are ready to submit an application, this is how you do it and how it will be considered. You can find our tuition fees for postgraduate research here and more information on our Graduate School site.
