Please see postgraduate research study and research degree awards to explore the opportunities available.
There are three intakes per year, with programme start dates on 1 October (end of September for programmes with mandatory taught modules), 1 January and 1 April.
If you are an international applicant, please make sure you submit your application four and a half months before your preferred programme start date.
