PhD programme

The primary aim of our doctoral programme is to train and develop future academics. We have an active PhD community and our students play a full role in the Centre. We encourage and support conference attendance and publication.

We welcome applications for full-time and part-time study. Each year there are various University funding opportunities available. We also welcome applications from self-funded candidates.

All PhD students become members of the Doctoral College, which works to support and enrich the experience of our doctoral researchers
