Course Overview

We welcome applications from well-qualified and motivated students for PhD study (three years full-time, four to six years part-time).

You’ll work under individual supervision to become a leading expert in your area, while research training courses will support your learning and help you realise your maximum potential. Annual progress review panels keep your work on track and our seminar programmes and state-of-the-art facilities provide access to ideas and technologies to stimulate your development as a research scientist.

There will be numerous opportunities to collaborate and to present your research nationally and internationally via our extensive research and industrial partnerships. Also, you will have the opportunity to work as a teaching assistant on our taught programmes; a valuable source of experience and income.
