Postgraduate projects

Our postgraduate project booklet contains information on some of the projects currently on offer (subject to change).

Choosing the right PhD project depends on matching your interests to those of your supervisor.

Our research themes page gives an overview of the research taking place in the Department and contacts for each area. Potential supervisors can also be contacted directly through the academic staff list. They will be able to tell you more about the type of projects they offer and/or you can suggest a research project yourself. We also publish a booklet of research projects offered by academics in the department.

Please note that all PhD projects are eligible for funding via a variety of scholarships from the Department, the Faculty of Science and Engineering and/or the University; see our funding page for further details. All scholarships are awarded competitively by the relevant postgraduate funding committees.

Academics regularly apply for research grants and may therefore be able to offer funding for specific projects without requiring approval from these committees. Some specific funded projects are listed below, but many of our students instead arrive at a project through discussion with potential supervisors.
