What you'll learn

A PhD is an original and distinct contribution to the knowledge of the field of study. It is often essential for those wishing to follow an academic or research career in organisations. PhD research can be carried out in all subject areas.

How you'll learn

All postgraduate research students are supervised by at least two research-active staff. Your supervisors will support your programme of research through regular meetings and reviews.

The PhD course usually takes a minimum of 36 months (full-time) or 60 months (part-time) to complete. 

At the end of your PhD, you will be required to submit a thesis summarising your research. You will then have to undergo an oral examination (a viva) on your thesis.

How you will be assessed

Your research proposal

Research proposals give us a better understanding of the area you want to study for a PhD.

You don't have to follow a predetermined structure when writing your proposal. Still, it is a good idea to include a title that describes the aims and scope of your research and information on how your ideas fit in with the research interests of UEL.

Other essential elements include relevant academic literature, how your research will advance knowledge in this area, and a possible methodology. You should also have a timescale for your research.

To find out more about how to write your research proposal, see our research proposal guidance.
