Programme Structure

Structure:

  • A research degree doesn't have a taught structure, giving you the chance to investigate your chosen topic in real depth and reach a profound understanding. In communicating that understanding, through a thesis or other means, you have a rare opportunity to generate knowledge.

  • A research degree allows you to develop new high-level skills, enhance your professional development and build new networks. It can open doors to many careers.
