Why choose a postgraduate research degree?

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/PhD. Based on your progress at the MPhil stage of the programme, you can then apply to transfer to a PhD. Throughout the research project, we'll assign you a supervisory team, who will guide and advise you, help you shape ideas, and support your progress. You can take up to four years full-time or seven years part-time to complete a MPhil/PhD programme with us.
