Students usually start in September, January or April but start dates outside these cohorts may be possible in discussion with supervisory teams.

As well as the support provided by their supervisory teams, all PhD students at Staffordshire University are also supported by The Graduate School, which aims to provide a rich, supportive environment for every research degree student situated in the University’s academic schools. They run induction days for new students, to help them understand how their degree works and what to expect. They also offer dozens of workshops each year to help with students’ professional development and contribute to an annual Postgraduate Research Conference, and also host a number of social events where researchers can meet and share experiences.

Potential applicants should contact The Graduate School in the first instance to find out about how to apply.
