You can choose to study at either Doctoral or Masters level, and either full- or part-time. Your study will involve you conducting an individual research project on an approved topic supervised by academic staff with relevant expertise.
If you are studying full-time you will usually spend around 35 hours per week on your research.
All postgraduate research students have access to a calendar of skills development opportunities to support them in their research.
If you choose to study for a professional doctorate will normally be required to attend some formal scheduled teaching and complete assessments as part of your degree. Please refer to individual programmes for details.
Please note it may take up to eight weeks for a decision to be made on your application. The reason for this is that your research proposal will normally be reviewed by two members of academic staff and you will be required to attend an interview before any offer of a place is made.
Should you wish to enquire about the status of your application, you can contact the Graduate School.
