Postgraduate Directorate

The goal of the Postgraduate Directorate is to provide a strong, clear and attractive pipeline of study, from Undergraduate to Doctorate, aligned to our research strengths and aspirations.

We aim to do this by growing our postgraduate portfolio (teaching and research), improving the student experience and strengthening our international educational partnerships and collaborations.

Working across the Faculty, the Directorate’s Masters and Doctoral programmes teams enhance our portfolio and the experience of our Postgraduate students who may be studying on campus, overseas and online.  Partners, stakeholders and academic colleagues receive specialist support in portfolio development, the management of Doctoral Training Programmes, education partnerships and collaborative agreements from our expert staff.

As well as providing strategic focus, the Postgraduate Directorate is a physical and virtual home for our Postgraduate cohort.  Our PGR Wellbeing Hub gives our students access to both a calm and relaxing physical space and the specialist advice and support of our EDI and Wellbeing Officer.
