The University of Gloucestershire offers a variety of research degree programmes to cater for a range of postgraduate interests. As a research student, you’ll work on your topic of interest with the support of at least two supervisors who will provide subject and methodological expertise.
You’ll also join other students for a number of sessions such as learning about research methods, seminars and study groups, as well as sharing study spaces.
Why choose the University of Gloucestershire?
We’re proud of the excellent research conducted by university staff in our selected fields of expertise. In November last year, we submitted research in six areas for the national Research Excellence Framework exercise. In accordance with the university’s research strategy, we’re investing in six future priorities for research excellence, including new areas such as Applied Design for Business, and Retail, Marketing and Management.
We offer a range of postgraduate research opportunities across the university, allowing you to work on your individual research topic alongside experienced researchers and supervisors.
In addition to full training in research methods, the university also provides a training programme if you wish to pursue a teaching career in higher education. There are also opportunities for you to undertake paid part-time lecturing and tutorial work, if appropriate.
When can you start?
There are two start dates for research degrees: October and February. UK and EU students can study on either a full-time or part-time basis, or, where appropriate, away from the university. International students studying in the UK on a student visa are required to study on a full-time basis.
