We offer three year PhD research programmes, and also cater for part-time PhD students. Every year we organise a Postgraduate conference where all PhD students present their results.
In addition to training in research specific skills we offer all our PhD students excellent training in a wide range of other skills, such as statistics and web design, through the SAgE Graduate School.
