Postgraduate study by research and thesis (21 months for a Masters degree and a minimum of 3 years for a Ph.D. degree) is available in most departments. In many cases funding is available for research projects where a stipend and fees would be paid.


Applications are welcome from students wishing to pursue postgraduate research study at Masters and Doctoral levels. Such applicants are strongly advised as a first step to contact the relevant department in which they wish to study.


In addition, postgraduate research students must apply to and be accepted onto the Postgraduate Research Register before commencing their studies. The application form is available from the Graduate Studies Office or by clicking here
