A research degree at Cardiff University gives you the opportunity to investigate a specific topic in real depth amongst field-leading researchers with truly first-class facilities.
Research degrees are focused on independent study. Unlike taught students, you'll work with your supervisor to identify your study needs. Some research degrees include taught elements that focus on research conduct or in depth knowledge required for your project.
