Study at one of the world's great research universities

The Faculty has a vibrant research culture where PhD students have opportunities to be involved in cutting edge research and work with world experts in their field.

We provide the support necessary to successfully complete a PhD and to equip researchers for a career in academia or other sectors. For information about training opportunities including research methods, academic writing and conference presentations visit the PGR training page.

The wide-ranging expertise at the University means we can accommodate many research interests and thesis proposals, including innovative interdisciplinary work that links to our strategic research themes.
