PGR Handbooks

The Postgraduate Researcher Handbook sets out the main features of the postgraduate research degree, covering important information about the regulations, policies and procedures. It aims to make clear what you should expect from us during your study in terms of supervision, support and assessment. It also sets out what the university and those responsible for your study should expect of you.  These mutual responsibilities and expectations are intended to provide a framework within which you can flourish on your research degree.
