We accept graduate students for the degree of MPhil leading to a PhD. Transfer to PhD status normally takes place in the second year and depends on satisfactory progress. Students are required to take an appropriate programme of research training.
Recent postgraduate students and visiting scholars have come from various Middle East countries, Bulgaria, the Ukraine, the United States, Canada, Italy, Korea, Japan, China, Thailand and Turkey.
We also run a Buddy scheme, a mentoring programme which links incoming first year research students with more established second or third year research students.
