PhD study at SEF
Doctoral level study is the highest degree offered by the School, and is for suitably qualified candidates in areas where appropriate supervision is available.
A PhD consists of supervised research taking a minimum of 36 months full-time (or equivalent). The PhD dissertation is written in close consultation with at least two staff members, a Primary and a Secondary, who act as supervisors. At submission, the candidate submits a piece of work constituting a significant contribution to the body of knowledge in the subject area chosen.
Our staff research areas page may be useful when thinking about topics and identifying potential supervisors.
