Further information

Initially, you study alongside postgraduate students on one of our five Master’s programmes in computing science. You can choose from: Advanced Computer Science; Bioinformatics and Computational Systems Biology; Computing Science; Internet Technologies and Enterprise Computing; Computer Security and Resilience; or Computer Game Engineering. The subject-specific and research training modules covered by these programmes help you develop the topic for your Integrated PhD thesis and equip you with the study skills to manage your research project. To qualify for the research component of the IPhD programme students are expected to have a minimum average mark of 65. Students who do not qualify for continuation with the research component will be allowed to complete a full Master’s level research project and will be awarded an appropriate Master’s degree if they satisfy the criteria for such degree.

The research component of the IPhD provides substantial training in research methods and tools and gives you an opportunity to make a unique contribution to computer science research. You work under the guidance of an experienced computer scientist within a research group and with the support of a team of advisers. Before you begin, you choose a broad area of interest within computing science and a supervisor with appropriate expertise.
