Our Doctorate’s of Philosophy (PhDs) can be studied on a full or part-time basis. Offered in partnership with the University of the West of England (UWE), this is the highest level of academic study available and would normally be taken on successful completion of a master's degree, directly from your undergraduate degree or following a period in industry.
The main component is the doctoral thesis - a significant research project on a specialist topic that adds new knowledge or understanding to your field of study, and is worthy of publication. You’ll be paired with one of our specialised supervisors to drive forward your project.
Doctorates are generally completed over three to five years. As a PhD student, you’ll benefit from our unique research environment. Through our partnership with UWE, you’ll be a member of two passionate research communities, with access to a diverse range of resources, including cutting-edge commercial facilities and extensive research subjects, expertise and academic services.
