PhD and MPhil opportunities

Our currently available PhD and MSc by Research opportunities are listed below. Alternatively, you can develop your own research interest and identify a member of staff who may be able to supervise your proposed project. It is strongly advised that you make contact with a potential supervisor before you apply, to see whether they are taking on new PhD or MSc by Research students, and whether they would consider your application. It is not a requirement to provide a detailed research proposal (unless you wish to do so or it is requested by the potential supervisor), but you should provide an outline of your area of research interest. 

A description of the research interests of members of staff within our School can be found by viewing their profile pages here.



We require that all applicants should have a good Honours degree (at least 2.1 or equivalent) and an English qualification (e.g., GCSE, IELTS etc.). Applications should be completed on-line (see the 'How to Apply' pages).
