Why USW?

Postgraduate researchers are assigned a supervisory team who have the expertise and experience to support them in their studies. Supervisors will help you to shape your research project, give feedback on work in progress and guide you to completion.

Throughout your doctorate, you will have opportunities to communicate your work and network with other researchers, internally and externally. Many of our students have the opportunity to gain teaching experience at the University and with schools through the Brilliant Club

You will also benefit from a programme of relevant skills development courses organised by the Graduate School which helps ensure that you are fully prepared for the demands of a PhD.

When you are ready to submit an application, this is how to apply. You can find our tuition fees for postgraduate research here and more information on our Graduate School site.
