Postgraduate research study

A postgraduate research degree is a rich and fulfilling experience. You'll develop high-level, transferable skills and knowledge that are always in demand in academia and business.

Research programmes at Greenwich are at the leading edge of progress in a range of industries. Our staff and students contribute significantly to developing knowledge and understanding that improves business practices, influences policymakers, and sets standards in the wider community for the UK and worldwide.

Your postgraduate programme

The University of Greenwich's preferred route to PhD is, in the first instance, registration for an MPhil. Based on your achievements with this, you can then transfer to a PhD. At this point, we'll assign you a supervisor, who will guide and advise you, help you shape ideas, and support your progress.

You can take up to five years to complete a full-time study PhD with us – or six years part-time.
