We offer a wide range of expertise to support your postgraduate research, and we'll help you find the supervisor that's right for you
The Graduate College requires you to contact and secure a potential research supervisor before you make your application with us. The following information will help you with this process.*
There are multiple ways to find a supervisor. We recommend the following:
- Searching for your area or topic of interest on ResearchSpace, our staff research respository
- Looking at our research centres and groups
- Exploring staff in our interest areas or via their staff profiles
*Please note this does not apply to MA Taught degrees, where you can apply via the usual route on the course page.
