Our experienced academics in the School of Law, many of whom are engaged in internationally recognised research, will provide you with supervision as you pursue a research programme for the award of a PhD degree. Once enrolled, your appointed supervisors, supported by a Director of Research will help you prepare a proposal for registration, the next formal stage in the research programme. Once registered you will then undertake your research and write up your thesis. You may undertake research on either a full-time or part-time basis.
