About PhD study

This course is available for you to study either on a full-time or part-time basis and you have the flexibility to switch should you need to.

A PhD is founded on independent research. You will undertake a systematic and in-depth exploration of your chosen topic to produce a substantial body of knowledge and make an original and important contribution to the subject area.

The support provided by your supervisory team will be vital to your student experience and scholarly advancement. You and your supervisors will have regular one-to-one meetings which will provide you with opportunities to develop your research topic and discuss your progress.


The graduates of this course will have the ability to critically analyse, display intellectual maturity, and research independently, these skills are highly valued within academia and the workplace. Many students who undertake this PhD course go on to pursue an academic career, following the PhD with postdoctoral study, then a fellowship or lectureship.

As well as building the foundations of an academic career, studying for a PhD will enable you to develop excellent computer science skills and become an expert in your field.
