The Science and Engineering Structured PhD programme has been developed to provide PhD students with a high-quality experience of original research which is integrated with professional development. It aims to develop and broaden student’s research knowledge and transferable skills through a formalised and integrated programme of activities that will serve them both in the completion of their research and in the career path that they may follow after their graduation. 

The documents below will provide assistance and information to PhD students and their supervisors and are designed to easily find out how the S+E Structured PhD works.  The first document outlines a list of “pre-approved” specialised modules and a Certificate in Generic and Transferrable Research Skills, both of which are designed to help the student and supervisor select an appropriate path to the taught element of the structured PhD programme.  It also has a link to the 'Structured PhD Programme and Research Student Module(s) Registration Form.

The second document gives a brief outline of the Structured PhD Guidelines
