University of Bristol


PhD work centres on research leading to a dissertation. With the support of academic supervisors to guide you, you undertake research training and carry out personal research on a topic of interest. You will work with supervisors, who are internationally-recognised researchers in their field. The doctoral community is large and diverse; you will also join one of our five research centres and this will give you the opportunity to get to know other researchers working in similar areas. There are more than 90 research students working in the Graduate School of Education. The atmosphere is exciting, creative and welcoming.
