We are keen to attract graduates from all these disciplines to carry out postgraduate research.

Ratings for quality of supervision, resources, research skills training and professional development met or exceeded sector averages.

Most of our final-year research students express a wish to continue in research. The majority of recent PhD graduates now work in the academic sector, with others working in the health and private sectors.
