Course summary

About the course

A University of Hertfordshire research degree is an internationally recognised degree signifying high levels of achievement in research. It develops extensive subject expertise and independent research skills which are honed over an extended period, depending on the level of the award. You would undertake a substantial, original research project for the duration of the degree, under the supervision and guidance of two or more academic members of staff. Your supervisory team provides guidance both in the selection of a research topic and in the conduct of the research. You are also supported by attendance at postgraduate seminar series to develop subject specific knowledge and research skills relevant to your field of research. The degree is assessed solely on the basis of the final research output, in the form of a substantial written thesis which must be "defended" in a viva. During the course of the degree, you would be given opportunities to present your work at major conferences and in refereed research publications.

What will I study?

Research degrees are not taught programmes, however, programmes of supporting studies are a key element. The School of Psychology has an international reputation for conducting high quality research across a broad range of psychological disciplines. Postgraduate students account for a substantial part of the School's research effort, and the School views the development and training of its postgraduate research students as highly important. Postgraduate students are encouraged to present their work at national and international conferences and at weekly research seminars. These seminars, along with a number of specialist reading groups, provide a supportive and friendly forum for the discussion of research issues and for the development of research skills.
