Computer Science MPhil/PhD
We welcome applications from well qualified, able and enthusiastic students for PhD (three years full-time, four to six years part-time) and MPhil (two years) programmes in any of our research areas.
We also offer a PhD (Professional Route) for those with a track record of research in an industrial environment who are interested in gaining a doctoral qualification. You may come to us directly for the purpose of doing a PhD or apply to work on our research projects, and we will encourage you to pursue a part-time PhD alongside your employment.
We recommend that you visit our website to read the latest information about our projects and research areas. Here you will also find details on preparing proposals, on contacting individual staff and on funding.
Under individual supervision you'll work to become a leading expert in your area, while research skills courses will support your learning and help you realise your maximum potential. Annual progress review panels keep your work on track and our seminar programmes and state of the art facilities mean there's plenty of ideas and technologies to stimulate your development as a research scientist.
There are numerous opportunities to collaborate and to present your research nationally and internationally via our extensive research and industrial partnerships. Also, you may have the opportunity to work as a teaching assistant on our taught programmes; a valuable source of experience and income.
