Transferable skills and academia

A research degree can open new career opportunities in commercial research and development, consultancy, or could lead you to starting your own business.

You may alternatively consider a career in academia. You may wish to undertake research to contribute to your knowledge of a specialist subject, or develop your employability by enhancing your skills in project management and analysis.

Programme Structure

  • To be awarded a PhD, you will need to complete a complex and advanced project. You will be expected to critically investigate and evaluate an approved topic, which results in an original and independent contribution to knowledge, as well as to demonstrate an understanding of research methods appropriate to your chosen field.
  • You will have to present and defend your thesis and/or practical element by viva voce (oral examination), to the satisfaction of the examiners.
