In the most recent Research Assessment Exercise, we ranked 16th in the UK for research of a 4* standard and 18th for 3* and 4* standard. This highlights our position as one of the UK’s leading research-intensive institutions.
We have more than 900 postgraduate students conducting specialist research leading to a University of London PhD.
The PhD programme allows postgraduate research students to explore a specific area of their own choosing overseen by a supervisory team culminating in a large-scale thesis.
In addition to the subject-specific training obtained within the students’ home department, we also place great emphasis on transferable skills training provided by the Generic Skills Programme.
