The aim of your postgraduate research degree is to ensure that you have the requisite research training and education to prepare you for future research and career endeavours. As such, all research programmes are delivered in conjunction with the Graduate School where a comprehensive development programme covering all aspects of research training and processes are covered, this in addition to having a supervisory team of up to three academics. Further to this, all postgraduate researchers are encouraged to attend, and submit work to appropriate conferences. The research award (either MPhil or PhD) will be assessed via a written thesis and a viva-voce examination.
