A doctorate degree is the highest level of academic qualification possible. It allows students to undertake research in specific areas of specialisation, reflecting the research interests of the department. The intention of a doctorate degree is to instill scientific rigour and deep understanding of a specific problem area and offer new contributions to the field of research.

Although a doctorate degree might sound intimidating, it is actually a highly enriching experience that allows you to go into depth of a particular research problem and gives you the possibility of exploring potential solutions and coming up with different ideas.

More detailed information about a doctorate degree can be found here. However, in the first instance, you should check out the different research areas within our Department, and contact the relevant people.
