Frequently asked questions

Can I visit the School?

Yes, either during an open day or by arranging an individual visit.

What support would I receive?

Research students are supported by at least one main supervisor, a supervisory team of two additional academics, dedicated research officers and a training programme tailored to the individual needs of the field of research study. All programmes have a clear set of goals and deliverables for each year of study.

The supervisory team offers advice on a continual basis and formally reviews progress annually. The Graduate School provides additional support to all research students throughout the University.

What would I have to contribute?

Research students are expected to participate in national meetings, international conferences and journal writing. This is reinforced by our postgraduate research objectives; by the University’s Postgraduate Training Scheme (PGTS); by a departmental Travel Fund for research students; and by the Department’s own annual industry-sponsored one-day conference.

As much of our work is multidisciplinary, our research students frequently attend and participate in seminars and events hosted by other school and research groups.

I have more questions. What do I do?

For enquiries and questions about the research area that you have chosen, please contact directly your potential supervisors. These, together with information on research project topics, can be accessed through our project topics web page.

If you have a general question about postgraduate study that is not covered by the text above, please contact postgraduate research enquiries (details on the right hand side of this page) or visit our community site WhereWouldYouThink for further information and assistance.
