PhD Research

You can study for a PhD on a full (3 years) or part-time (6 years) basis and by the end of your programme , you will have produced a body of work that makes a contribution to knowledge in your chosen field.

We have various routes to obtaining a PhD - for example, in some areas you can submit a practical element as part of your submission, such as a piece of art or a musical composition.
