About

In the Computer and Information Sciences programme at the University of Strathclyde, you can study an MPhil over the course of one year or a PhD over the course of three years here in Scotland.

Overview

Saudi Arabia programme

Female members of academic staff in some Saudi universities may be eligible to apply for PhD entry under our External Joint Supervision Programme. This allows for study to take place in Saudi Arabia with occasional student visits to Strathclyde. In the first instance, prospective applicants should contact the External Joint Supervision Programme administrators in their home institution since local university support is required.

Postgraduate Certificate in Researcher Professional Development (PG Cert RPD) programme 

As part of your the Computer and Information Sciences programme at the University of Strathclyde, you'll be enrolled on the Postgraduate Certificate in Researcher Professional Development (PG Cert RPD). 

This certificate is designed to support you with your research and rewards you for things you'll do as a research student here.

It'll help you improve skills which are important to professional development and employability:

  • the knowledge and intellectual abilities to conduct your research
  • the personal qualities to succeed in your research and chosen career
  • the standards, requirements and conduct of a professional researcher in your discipline
  • working with others and communicating the impact of your research to a wide range of audiences

All you have to do is plan these activities alongside your doctorate, documenting and reflecting your journey to success along the way.
