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.
Research in the School of Science and Technology is rich and diverse, with staff conducting internationally recognised and world-leading research. Research is clustered in Research Centres and units, providing a focus for different themes with their underpinning platforms:
Biomedical Sciences and the John Van Geest Cancer Research Centre -
Internationally excellent research environment - Our Biomedical Research is world-leading and involves staff with broad academic backgrounds, including Biochemistry, Bioinformatics and Biomathematics, Analytical/Synthetic Medicinal Chemistry, Immunology, Microbiology and Pharmacology. In the recent REF2014 assessment of University research quality the Biomedical Sciences Research Unit's submission (to UoA A03) was highly rated, having 86% of overall activity at the highest 3* (internationally excellent) and 4* (world-leading) grades. This included achieving 100% of its impact at 3* and 4* levels.
Computing and Informatics -
Internationally excellent research impact - The multi-disciplinary research is directed to address important questions and is clustered under three themes: Interactive Systems for cognitive and physical rehabilitation and mental wellbeing; Computational Intelligence and Applications for computationally intelligent methods and techniques; and Intelligent simulation, modelling and networking. In the recent REF2014 assessment of University research quality the Computing and Informatics Research Unit's submission (to UoA B11) was highly rated achieving 80% of its impact at 4* and 3* levels.
Materials and Engineering -
