Postgraduate research (PhD)

We have an enthusiastic research community, a welcoming atmosphere and excellent research facilities.

We are large enough to have expertise in many fields, but small enough to be friendly and allow regular contact between students and staff members. Currently there are 15 research students enrolled in the Department.

Our research students are strongly encouraged to interact with other members of the school, attend term-time seminar series and present their own work in less formal workshops.
