Postgraduate research opportunities

Browse through our research degree opportunities to find funded projects and scholarships. These opportunities are awarded on the basis of academic merit and are very competitive, so it is important you make enquiries and apply as early as possible. If you have already secured funding, we have a range of non-funded projects available.
