We offer high-quality doctoral training to postgraduate students who wish to pursue a PhD. As a research student you will work under a supervisor who will assist you in your research and thesis design. By registering for your postgraduate research degree at the Malaysia Campus, you will benefit from dual dissertation supervision by academics based in Malaysia and the UK.
This programme is part of a 1+2 split scheme where you will spend all, or a substantial part, of your first year at the UK Campus to take advantage of the taught PhD-level modules offered. The rest of your programme will then be completed at the Malaysia Campus. While the time taken to undertake the element at the Malaysia Campus is extended for students studying part-time, these students are encouraged to complete the first year training in the UK on a full-time basis.
