Research degrees

Our research degrees allow you to dive deep into the area that most interests you. You’ll gain extensive knowledge of your chosen specialism, and make your own meaningful contribution to your field in turn.

In the last Research Excellence Framework, 82% of our research was deemed to be world leading or internationally excellent. This excellence, combined with the breadth of our specialisms, makes our School the perfect place to pursue a research degree.

As a research student in our School, you’ll be a valued member of our vibrant and innovative research community. With expert guidance from your supervisors you’ll produce work that’s original, thorough and refined.
