The Graduate School currently has around 80 full-time and part-time students from the UK and overseas funded by research councils and other sources. The Graduate School captures all that’s good about research: a mixture of stimulating intellectual activity and enjoyable social interaction.
Student and staff research is organised into six research groups: Earth Surface Dynamics (ESD); Economy, Governance and Culture; GeoData; Global Environmental Change and Earth Observation (GECEO); Palaeoenvironmental Laboratory at the University of Southampton (PLUS); Population, Health and Wellbeing (PHeW) On joining us you will become a member of one (or more) of these groups.
Candidates at Southampton register initially for a MPhil degree, which then converts to a PhD following a satisfactory upgrade report during the second year of candidature. Each MPhil and PhD student receives formal research training and detailed tuition tailored to their own needs.
