The School has around 70 postgraduate research students studying across all of our research areas.
Each year we advertise typically 15-20 defined research projects and expect to recruit full-time postgraduate students to 8-10 of those projects, on fully-funded studentships (providing fees and stipend).
Part-time, self-funded postgraduate students on self-defined projects are also welcomed where the projects closely match the interests and activities of staff members.
The usual start date for new PhD students is 1st October, but we sometimes have projects and studentships available for start on 1st February too.
