Postgraduate research

Postgraduate research student in library

At the Welsh School of Architecture we offer research students an opportunity to work and study alongside internationally recognised academics.

Our research degrees relate to the School’s established reputation in all aspects of sustainability, architectural history and design-led approaches to research.

A full-time PhD registration is three years (or five years part-time) and a full-time MPhil is one year (or two years part-time).

There are six available research groups:

  • Computational Methods
  • Design, Materials and Making
  • Energy, Environment and People
  • Heritage and Conservation
  • Humanities
  • Urbanism.

Research is key to the School’s activities. It leads to new knowledge in its own right, but also informs teaching and makes an impact on the world beyond academia. A research degree is excellent training for those who wish to pursue a career in research, higher education, industry or professional consultancy.

We are now offering a new PhD in Creative Practice in Architecture available to practising architects.
