Course summary

Our postgraduate students are well integrated and fundamental to the work that we do, and we pride ourselves on supporting them to make sure that they achieve their full potential. We have developed an international reputation for our research in evolutionary biology, earth science and functional ecology. Our state-of-the-art research facilities include environmentally controlled tropical and cold water aquarium systems, and a microscopy suite.

We offer MSc by Thesis and PhD opportunities and we have a network of exceptional research opportunities. An MSc by Thesis is a postgraduate degree option with more research freedom than the more conventional taught pathways. On this programme, you spend a year on a research project closely advised by your research supervisor. At the end of your project you submit a research thesis, which will be evaluated by a research panel. A PhD, meanwhile is the ultimate form of student-centred learning, allowing you to focus your research interests and make an original and meaningful contribution to science.

Our academic experts welcome postgraduate research applications across a broad range of topics. Environment and Ecology, Evolutionary Biology.
