Postgraduate training is centred on a research project, which students generally spend three years working on. These challenging projects are at the forefront in developments in Nanoscience and Nanotechnology and leads to publications in international journals and invitations to present lectures as prestigious international conferences.

Professional scientists are expected to make presentations, write research proposals, reports and papers, plan future experiments on various timescales, provide leadership and manage the work of others, as well as carry out laboratory experiments. Our objectives are to assist and encourage you in developing and implementing these skills, and to support you in achieving the highest standards possible as a professional scientist.

PhD programmes produce high-quality professional scientists, with a sound understanding of the field and an enthusiasm to contribute to scientific development in an academic or industrial environment. The various areas of research are detailed below
