About Animal, Rural and Environmental Sciences at Nottingham Trent University

The School of Animal, Rural and Environmental Sciences at Nottingham Trent University offers opportunities to study for an MPhil or PhD by research.

Research within the School of Animal, Rural and Environmental Sciences specialises in the fields of:

Environmental Management

Biodiversity Conservation

Equestrian Sports

Animal Welfare

Animal Nutrition

Food and Agriculture.

In addition the School is developing research that will support its Rural Knowledge and Enterprise initiative, including horticulture, sustainable waste management and food technology.

The campus has its own laboratories, IT and library suites as well as an animal care unit, equestrian centre and modern glasshouses. Students based at Brackenhurst also have access to facilities at the University's Clifton campus and City site.

Undertaking an MPhil or PhD

Nottingham Trent University offers opportunities to study for an MPhil or PhD by research in all its academic schools. Supervision is available by full-time or part-time study, and can sometimes be provided by distance learning.

Supporting your studies

Carrying out research for a PhD, MPhil or ProfD requires different skills from undergraduate or taught postgraduate study. You will mostly work on your own research project, but we also emphasise the importance of regular meetings with your supervisory team.

The team consists of a director of studies (who will usually have expertise in your subject area) and at least one other supervisor selected for their complementary expertise such as relevant research methods.

The Doctoral School Team will support you from your initial enquiry, through the application process and the various stages of your degree, until your viva voce examination and subsequent graduation. Once you begin your studies, you will have induction sessions to introduce you to the University, help you settle in and meet other researchers.

Researcher training

In addition to studying for a research degree, students undertaking traditional route PhDs will participate in researcher training. This combines general research training with specific topics associated with your discipline. The training focuses on the requirements of external research funding bodies and government requirements.

We also provide a structured programme of transferable skills training and career development. This is informed by the work of Vitae, the national organisation which support researchers throughout their careers.
