PhD research

PhD research studies are supported by Research Council, industrial and College studentships, and projects cover the wide range of departmental research interests. Our postgraduate teaching and research activities strengthen links with a wide range of industrial and commercial partners within the oil, mineral, extraction, waste management and water industries. These links provide support for research, employment for graduates and work experience for undergraduates.

We offer a range of full-time MPhil & PhD research projects. If you are interested in a project, prefer to study part-time, or wish to discuss potential projects of your own design, please contact the lead supervisor, and submit a CV.

The department aims to fund up to two PhD scholarships (maintenance & home fees).

Bench Fees

The cost of your research needs should be discussed in advance with your supervisor and appropriate sources for this funding should be identified

For more information email the Postgraduate Programmes Coordinator, or call 01784-443581.

Applications will require 2 letters of reference, plus a cover letter and CV. The departmental policy is to offer all available studentships to the best applicants across the range of PhD topics on offer.

Applicants are requested to send an additional copy of their CV directly to the lead supervisor of the project in which they are interested. Please also contact the supervisor if you have any questions about the project itself.

Applicants for Royal Holloway funding will be invited for interview usually in late February and offers are made soon after. Other applications are welcome at any time.
