Research programmes

Why study with us? Our students discuss the benefits from industry links, research excellence and a supportive working environment.

We encourage a variety of research interests, reflected in the wide range of topics studied by our current students. Our academic staff are always open to ideas which extend existing work or introduce new topics to their existing subject areas.

Guidance on the different types of research programmes available can be found on our study site.

We also offer studentships and scholarships to support our students. Find out if you are eligible for funding to support your research programme or browse our PhD project opportunities.
