We have three fully funded studentships to offer each year. Students will spend the first year of the 1+3 year PhD following the MRes programme.
During this year students will carry out three short research projects with supervisors from the supervisor pool before making a final choice as to their research project for their three year PhD.
Students are offered a varied choice of research projects below are examples of projects offered in previous years.
