Postgraduate research

Our research degrees give you the freedom to investigate a cutting-edge topic in depth, amongst leading researchers with first-class facilities.

We have a strong reputation for the quality of the research that we conduct and attract large research grants from a variety of sources. At any one time, we have about 60 students studying for PhD qualification by research.

We have a diverse research portfolio and a range of research facilities.

Discipline areas for PhD and MPhil degrees


Our PhD studentships are funded from several sources including the Research Councils, industry, charities or the School itself.

"I am fully funded by Cancer Research Wales. My previous degree was on a similar project to my current one. However, doing a PhD is completely different from doing a master’s degree. A PhD student feels more mature to undertake responsibilities and face challenges. Also, in this level of study a student has an active role and sometimes is the one who runs the show"
