Course Summary

The PhD with Integrated Study has been developed to provide a new route to the internationally-respected British PhD degree by incorporating subject knowledge, research training and the development of transferable skills. The programme normally lasts for four years and combines a broad foundation in atmospheric science and air pollution through taught and assessed coursework, with the full research training and experience of a traditional PhD within which a student pursues their own research in a tightly-focused area. The PhD with Integrated Study in Atmospheric Sciences and Air Pollution has been developed to provide a new route to the internationally-respected British PhD degree by incorporating subject knowledge, research training and the development of transferable skills. While the traditional PhD programme requires students to engage entirely in research, with appropriate research training, culminating in the production of a thesis, the PhD with Integrated Study enables students to gain added value from taught, subject-based modules. The taught modules allow students to broaden as well as deepen their subject knowledge at the same time as undertaking their own research and developing a set of transferable professional skills in preparation for careers as professional educators, researchers and for senior positions in public and private sector organisations.
