University of Surrey
A high level of academic achievement in relevant science/engineering subject areas and a clear aptitude for research are required. Typically this will mean a 1st or high upper 2nd Class Bachelors degree with a significant final-year project or dissertation, or a Masters degree achieving or approaching distinction, with a significant research project element. Non-native speakers of English are required to have IELTS 6.5 or above.
The course's structure is designed to provide intensive graduate preparation for a future career and is suitable for either part-time or full-time candidates. Students can expect three levels of research training: University-level training is provided by the Postgraduate Skills Development Programme and the University Library including a PhD induction, workshops on writing skills and preparation for the confirmation and viva. There is also an annual student-led university postgraduate conference. School-level training is offered in the form of interdisciplinary seminars, reading groups, visiting speaker events and conferences. Students will also receive subject-specific training. Students may participate in research "intensives", featuring formal presentations of work by students, keynote seminars, study groups on current themes in arts research, and research skills training sessions. Students may meet regularly for debate and discussion and participate in annual formal presentations of research.
Assessment methods include a thesis and an oral viva with external examiners.
