The Doctoral College at Queen Mary University of London (QMUL) is committed to making sure that all students working towards research degrees are given access to the tools they need to enable them to conduct their research to the highest possible standards, and to develop as successful, independent researchers.
Our flexible training programmes, tailored to the needs of different students, have been designed to meet and exceed the exacting requirements of the UK Research Councils, and the Quality Assurance Agency for Higher Education. They ensure you will leave QMUL equipped to further your chosen career whether in research or other fields, within or beyond academia.
You do not have to pay additional fees for our research training courses.
Research training at QMUL is provided through four main routes:
In the rare cases where our students require specialist, advanced training not available at QMUL, students may apply to the Doctoral College's Postgraduate Research Fund – providing in excess of £100,000 additional financial support to QMUL's PhD students annually – to help meet the costs of such training.
