PhD students at the School of Mathematics and Computer Science are supervised by academics who are leading experts in their particular area of expertise. At least one academic in each supervisory team will have a track record of successful supervisions.
The School of Mathematics and Computer Science prides itself on the levels of support provided to postgraduate research students in the course of their PhD journey. Our academics meet regularly with their supervisees, and work closely with them at all stages of the project, from inception to completion.
The University of Wolverhampton provides a collegiate research environment and first-class facilities to its PhD students, including a dedicated postgraduate research room, access to the University’s Harrison Learning Centre and leading databases in the electronic resources.
Postgraduate research students are encouraged to present their research to University academics and fellow PhD students at colloquia within the School of Mathematics and Computer Science, which provide an encouraging and friendly environment for students to sharpen their research and presentation skills.
