Join our ever growing research community who originate from all over the world and you can draw on our experience academically and non-academically.

We provide a range of support and training that will enhance your development and you will be allocated a supervisor who will meet with you regularly.  Guidance can also be drawn from other relevant members of staff with specific expertise.  We also have a very engaging seminar programme that you can contribute to or gain experience from.
