PhD and postgraduate research opportunities in the Faculty of Environment and Technology
Join a thriving and expanding postgraduate research community.
What are my study options?
Our offered studentships are in specific subject areas required by industry, and occasionally the project itself will already be defined. Your tuition fees and living expenses are usually covered for three years and applications need to be submitted by a set deadline.
If you already know what you want to study (and it fits within one of our areas of expertise),then you have the choice to self-fund your studies, providing more flexibility in what it is you research. Some of our current students are sponsored by their employers, so this can be another option.
