Our postgraduate students are a well integrated and fundamental part of the research community and contribute a great deal to the shaping of the school. For this reason, we pride ourselves on supporting our postgraduate students to make sure that they achieve their full potential.

We are a vibrant, supportive community and new students are immediately welcomed into research groups within their school, where they can contribute to scholarship in their chosen discipline.

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 student and their field of research study. The supervisory team offers advice on a continual basis and formally reviews progress annually.

Research students are encouraged to participate in national meetings, international conferences and journal paper writing. This is supported by the University’s postgraduate training scheme, by a departmental Travel Fund for research students, and by the school’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 schools and research groups.

As well as support from the School, the University provides a high quality research environment that stimulates innovation and supports world class research. Support includes dedicated facilities for postgraduate students.
