All students are assigned two supervisors to provide support and advice throughout your study. One supervisor will always be from within the School, sometimes the second supervisor will be from another discipline. This approach encourages cross-disciplinary research and ensures you receive research supervision from experts in their field, wherever they work within the University. You will have regular, timetabled contact with your supervisors.
The School is embedded within the wider Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences. As part of their studies, research students in the School join others on the Faculty Research Training Programme.
The School has a large body of postgraduate research students and we encourage a research culture within the School. Postgraduate research students coming to the School of Architecture, Planning and Landscape can expect:
an allocated space (for full time students) with networked pc in a research studio
a research seminar series where school staff, external visitors and researchers present their work
mini-conferences where postgraduate students present their research to academics and peers
enrollment on the Faculty Research Training Programme to support and guide you in the initial stages of your research
contact with other researchers and academics working in their field through one of our five research centres
their own student run research journal, Forum, produced to demonstrate the breadth of research in the School and raise awareness of the diverse postgraduate research culture
your own kitchen and dedicated informal space, the Green Room
