PhD Research Projects are advertised opportunities to examine a pre-defined topic or answer a stated research question. Some projects may also provide scope for you to propose your own ideas and approaches.
This project is in competition for funding with other projects. Usually the project which receives the best applicant will be successful. Unsuccessful projects may still go ahead as self-funded opportunities. Applications for the project are welcome from all suitably qualified candidates, but potential funding may be restricted to a limited set of nationalities. You should check the project and department details for more information.
An American PhD usually takes 4-7 years to complete. Programmes normally take place within specialist university graduate skills and are more extensive than in Europe. Students begin with one or two years of coursework and examinations to develop a grounding in their subject before moving on to independent research on their doctoral thesis. This is then submitted for an oral ‘viva voce’ exam.
Some or all of the PhD opportunities in this programme have funding attached. Applications for this programme are welcome from suitably qualified candidates worldwide. Funding may only be available to a limited set of nationalities and you should read the full programme details for further information.
