If you are considering a career in academia, research or industry, our PhD grows the research skills you need to ask the important questions and successfully identify a path to answering them. Conducting a PhD provides you with the opportunity to get to grips with a challenging topic and be at the frontier of research in your selected area, one of a few people in the world who understand the nature of your topic. Research excellence begins with a great supervisory relationship. Your first step is to read the profiles of individual staff members to find the right supervisor for your area of interest, and contact them.
