The Ulster University Doctoral College has developed this guide to help research students (MPhil, Doctor of Medicine, PhD Researchers etc) and their supervisors navigate the various administrative stages of a research degree and to clarify who is responsible for doing what at each stage. Your faculties may also provide additional handbooks and guidance notes on matters relating to your specific research area.

You should be aware that this guide and the related links contain the terms and conditions of your registration.

A general University-wide student guide has also been prepared and this should be referred to for general information and University wide policies.

The information provided in these pages is correct at the time of going to press. The University reserves the right to make changes to procedures at any time, before or after a candidate's admission. As much notice as possible will be given of such changes.

Subject level handbooks and contact details for Research Directors, Postgraduate Tutors and Admin Support are also available.
