Always verify the dates on the programme website.
Full-time, from 1 to 3 years. Part-time, from 2 to 4 years.
All researchers in VERU have completed supervisory training and are established researchers in their own research fields. If required, you will be placed in the appropriate collaborative department. All students will have adequate departmental support and access to full support services, including mandatory training events held by Anglia Ruskin.
VERU has state-of-the-art research facilities, including OCT (posterior/anterior), environmental chamber, aberration measuring equipment, specular microscope, motion analysis system and two high resolution eye trackers. We will ensure that all research projects have the necessary equipment before the study starts.
