About

Postgraduate research study within Audiology at The University of Manchester is a challenging and rewarding experience. Our audiology research is based in the internationally recognised Manchester Centre for Audiology and Deafness (ManCAD).

Overview

ManCAD is the UK leader for applied research in audiology and deafness that has a significant impact upon service delivery in the UK and abroad (eg the NHS newborn hearing screening programme, digital signal-processing hearing aids and the modernisation of NHS hearing aid services).

A PhD/MPhil in Audiology from The University of Manchester will give you:

  • flexibility to investigate findings not envisaged at the outset of the work and allow the topic to evolve;
  • a dedicated training structure that provides training in research skills and personal development;
  • an expert supervisory team that will assist the student throughout the study, ensuring academic objectives are met;
  • immersion in audiology research - students have the opportunity to discuss their research with fellow students, post-doctoral researchers and academics. ManCAD seminars provide background to recent developments in audiology and there are opportunities to share research findings, contribute to publications and attend/present at prominent conferences.

Postgraduate research projects may be outlined by the academic supervisor, or applicants themselves may identify a research project.

About PhD and MPhil degrees

PhD/MPhil programmes are based on individual research projects that last for three to four years (PhD) or one to two years (MPhil), working with a specific Primary Supervisor and Co-Supervisor(s). 

Applicants are specifically matched with a Primary Supervisor and individual project based on their research interests and background.

Programme Structure

Training and development

  • All of our postgraduate research students attend the Doctoral Academy Training Programme delivered by the Centre for Academic and Researcher Development (CARD).
  • The programme provides key transferable skills in areas such as commercial awareness, academic writing and public engagement. This training equips our postgraduates with the tools to progress beyond their research degree into influential positions within academia, industry and consultancy.
  • The emphasis is on enhancing skills critical to developing early-stage researchers and professionals, whether they relate to effective communication, disseminating research findings and project management skills.
