Graduate school

The Graduate School provides you with research training programmes where you will have the opportunity to work with students and academics across the range of faculty disciplines. The Graduate School provides a rich environment for study including induction activities, student conference, showcasing of students' work and networking opportunities.

Our Graduate School has a culture of research that seeks to define the direction of the discipline through undertaking leading-edge research and world-leading scholarship. We have a vibrant and eclectic community of over 120 graduates on both master's and doctoral training programmes.

Our mission is to recruit, inspire and to graduate some of the very best postgraduate students, both master's and doctoral, in geographical and environment research. We do this through a wide ranging postgraduate programme, with research that covers the full range of the discipline and by recruiting students with backgrounds in the sciences (natural and social), humanities and engineering.

Our Graduate School is supported by a community of scholars, a resource framework that is comparable with other leading centres of geographical learning, and a wide range of funding sources for both UK, EU and overseas scholarships.

Key features

The Graduate School currently has around 80 full-time and part-time students from the UK and overseas.

Our students are funded from a variety of sources including: ESRC, NERC, BBSRC and EPSRC research councils, VC scholarships, Geography and Environment scholarships as well as self-funded.

The Graduate School captures all that’s good about research: a mixture of stimulating intellectual activity and enjoyable social interaction.
