Our PhD provides professional, self-motivated researchers with the freedom to explore their chosen subject and make a significant contribution to their subject. Studying for a PhD can be challenging, but you will finish with a raft of transferable skills which are highly sought by employers. A PhD can be undertaken on either a full or part-time basis. General information about PhD study is available on the Graduate School‘s website.
Each postgraduate research student is supported by a high-quality supervisory team made up of different supervisors with appropriate expertise from among the academic staff. As a student, you will meet regularly with your supervisory team to establish clear objectives and develop a structured work plan.
Postgraduate research students are provided with an individualised and comprehensive training throughout their studies and are supported by the Faculty Postgraduate research student tutor.
Undertaking a PhD project in the FoHSC is perfect for me. There is always someone with an open door to bounce ideas off… or just have chat with! The faculty also has leading researchers in their specific fields which means you can get some incredible advice, guidance and support over a coffee. The main thing about the FoHSC is how everyone smiles- even when it’s cold, wet and windy outside!
