Course summary

This PhD provides you with the opportunity to interrogate a research topic of interest and develop your knowledge and research skills that can help you in a career in or beyond academia. You will receive training in the theoretical aspects of research. The overall focus is on acquiring the knowledge and skills to design, conduct, evaluate, disseminate and defend your own individual research. You will also acquire a range of transferable skills that are highly sought after by employers, including the capacity for critical thought. The PhD will suit candidates from a range of backgrounds and disciplines. It is particularly suitable if you aspire to a research-based career.

What will I study?

Compulsory research training sessions will cover aspects of research design, research data management and research project management. These sessions will enable you to identify, evaluate and construct arguments, design research questions, and make an original contribution to knowledge. Ethics, values and equality in research will also be considered.

Alongside this, you will devise and complete a programme of related studies, tailored to your own learning and skills needs, with the additional option of attending further training sessions focusing on methodological considerations in the sciences, social sciences, and arts and humanities.

What are my career prospects?

The skills and experience acquired through a PhD will provide ideal preparation for pursuing a research-based career.
