Postgraduate taught courses at the University of Leicester offer a route through to a full research degree. PhDs are typically completed with 3-4 years full-time study, although there are also part-time and distance learning options available.
The university maintains a varied team of postgraduate teaching staff, who provide a dynamic and engaging programme of guidance through the nuances of their subject area. Many are actively involved in ongoing research projects, which provide a context for their tuition, and opportunities for students to get invoiced with live research projects.
The University of Leicester is a research-driven institution, with a progressive and future-oriented approach towards its postgraduate programmes. There is a huge selection of research groups to participate in, which tackle some of the most significant challenges we face as a society and as a species.
The university fosters an extensive network of associates and professional partners to ensure that its research continues to be relevant to industry demand, and the graduate employment sector.
Leicester is anticipating the results of the 2021 Research Excellence Framework (REF) where it expects to build on the successes of the 2014 assessment, in which 75% of the university’s research output was rated as internationally excellent.
Leicester offers a continually evolving programme of postgraduate qualifications and study modes. The university has invested heavily in developing a capacity for delivering distance learning courses effectively and successfully and has over 25 years of experience in this teaching method.
There is a large selection of remote study options and qualifications, and the university’s distance learning students benefit from the flexible study, which allows them to organise their degree around existing employment and personal commitments, as well as complete a course of study from anywhere in the world.
