Course Summary

About the research degree

A PhD is the highest academic award for which a student can be registered. This programme allows you to explore and pursue a research project built around a substantial piece of work, and to make an original contribution to knowledge.

A full time PhD is a three-year programme of research and culminates in the production of a research thesis of 80,000 words.

You are expected to work to an approved programme of work including appropriate programmes of postgraduate study (which may be drawn from parts of existing postgraduate courses, final year degree programmes, conferences, seminars, masterclasses, guided reading or a combination of study methods).

Your main supervisor will normally head a supervisory team which will comprise up to three members. The research supervisor will advise and support you on your project.
