Graduate School

Welcome to the College of Physical Sciences Graduate School, whether you are simply browsing for study opportunities or if you are already a part of the College's extensive postgraduate community.

The Graduate School is home to around 700 postgraduate students who come together with internationally leading academic staff in an academically challenging, engaging and supportive environment. Our staff and research students pursue pure and applied industry-driven research which in turn directs and informs the teaching programmes.

With our strong industrial links, we are able to provide programmes which meet the needs of industry while at the same time promoting the transfer of cutting-edge research outcomes.  Browse our taught Master's programmes which recruit students from a wide range of undergraduate backgrounds (including arts & social sciences) as well as those that have no formal higher education qualifications (through our programmes that have professional entry routes).

We in the Graduate School play an important role advising students and staff from across disciplines on all matters concerned with postgraduate study. Whether you are working over three or four years towards a research degree, or you are here for just one year to complete a Master's, we provide the framework and support to help you achieve your ambitions.
