Research Degrees (PhD and MPhil)

We have opportunities for supervised, original research leading to the degrees of MPhil and PhD.

Our postgraduate awards have developed over the years – often with invaluable input from experts within associated industries – to provide opportunities for advanced study that are both academically challenging and vocationally relevant. The University operates within a vigorous research culture in which students undertaking MPhil and PhD degrees excel, undertaking work at the cutting edge of their fields.

Successful completion of an MPhil or a PhD represents the fulfilment of a person’s intellectual potential and a major life achievement.

Where there are a number of academic staff and doctoral researchers working together around common themes, the University has approved Research Centres and Research Groups. The University particularly welcomes PhD enquiries from potential applicants whose research may complement that of the Centres and Groups. We look forward to talking with you about your plans for postgraduate study.
