We ensure that PhD students are fully integrated members of our research community. As a doctoral student, we will expect you to contribute fully to the advancement of knowledge within your chosen academic field.

As a PhD student, you will develop your knowledge and skills in research design, qualitative and quantitative research methods and research ethics. Subject experts will guide and supervise you during your PhD programme.
