Course Summary

You can study an MPhil over the course of one year or a PhD over the course of three years. Part-time study is also available.

You can study either option in any of our research groups:

  • Computer Security
  • Data Analytics, Software Systems and Interaction
  • Digital Health & Wellness Group
  • Strathclyde iSchool Research Group
  • Mathematically Structured Programming

As part of your PhD degree, you'll be enrolled on the Postgraduate Certificate in Researcher Professional Development (PgCert RPD).

This certificate is designed to support you with your research and rewards you for things you'll do as a research student here.

It'll help you improve skills which are important to professional development and employability:

  • knowledge and intellectual abilities to conduct your research
  • personal qualities to succeed in your research and chosen career
  • standards, requirements and conduct of a professional researcher in your discipline
  • working with others and communicating the impact of your research to a wide range of audiences

All you have to do is plan these activities alongside your doctorate, documenting and reflecting your journey to success along the way.
