The recruitment of exceptional postgraduate students from the UK and around the world is central to our research philosophy. Students are active across the range of research areas and are funded from a range of sources (for example: self funded, industry). Our research students have access to state-of-the-art facilities; have dedicated office space and are encouraged to present their work at national and international conferences.
We welcome applications for PhD or Masters by Research study in one of our areas of expertise. You can study full or part time, on campus or remotely. If you're a professional with an existing body of research, a PhD by Portfolio could be the route for you.
Previous PhDs undertaken at SERC have included:
We also offer a range of undergraduate and postgraduate science courses, including the MSc Renewable Energy and Resource Management, developed by and taught by members of SERC.
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 doctoral research project, advise you on creating networks and establishing your career.
You can find our tuition fees for postgraduate research here and more information on our Graduate School site. When you are ready to submit an application, this is how you do it and how it will be considered.
