Course summary

PhD Earth and Environmental Sciences - The PhD (Doctor of Philosophy) research degree is typically 3 to 3.5 years full time and is completed upon submission of a substantial thesis of original research. You will be supported by a supervisor and second supervisor throughout your time with us. You may also have the opportunity to teach undergraduate-level work. This pattern of research allows you to focus on your doctoral thesis from the very start.

Research within the School is grouped into four main themes and it is strongly recommended that you contact the named supervisor on our advertised funded projects or one of our academics if you wish to discuss an alternative project.
