Course summary

This is a programme whose regulations fall under those for an Integrated PhD as outlined in the University Calendar. Candidates are required to undertake the scheme of study over a period of four years full-time registration, to pass the required examinations, and to submit a thesis not more than 12 months later than the end of the fourth year of study. In exceptional circumstances the Faculty Graduate School directorate may approve a later date for submission. If part-time candidates are permitted, they are required to submit a thesis not more than 12 months later than the end of the seventh year of study.

In the first year, students follow a taught programme of Level 7 modules selected from across a range to be approved by the programme director in consultation with the supervisory team. Following successful completion of the taught element, students embark on their individual research programme. In all years, the programme provides an integrated series of training modules to help students to develop professional and personal skills as well as scientific expertise.

The research work of each student will be closely supervised and supported, particularly during the research phase of the programme. The student will be monitored according to the progression milestones in the regulations for the Integrated PhD in a Named Subject and the Code of Practice for Research Candidature and Supervision.
