Course Summary

Research opportunities

We run a well-established Doctoral Training Centre (DTC) in Communication Disorders. This multidisciplinary DTC focuses on a wide range of aspects related to the diagnosis and treatment of people with communication problems. The supervisory pool spans all four University faculties, which provides you with access to the highest level of academic expertise as well as a significant pool of technical resources, including labs for speech & movement analyses, signal processing; systems for eye tracking, or EEG.

You can study an MPhil over one year or a PhD over three years, with the option of studying on a part-time basis.

All students enrol in a research development programme. PhD students will collect sufficient credits to graduate with a Postgraduate Certificate in Researcher Professional Development (PgCert RPD).

The programme is designed to support you with your research and develop skills which are important to your professional development and employability:

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