Throughout your PhD programme you will be advised by up to two supervisors with appropriate research expertise and interests. Your main supervisor will be nominated when you are offered a place on the Doctoral Programme; a second is chosen towards the end of your first year of study.
Finding a supervisor
Our faculty is made up of world leading experts, and with more than a third of our staff from countries outside the UK, our faculty is truly international. All our faculty are research-active, and the majority supervise doctoral research. At WBS we feel that the student/supervisor relationship should focus on an alignment of purpose, it is all about embarking on a journey together through your research.
You are strongly advised to contact potential supervisors to discuss your application. You do not need to have secured a potential supervisor’s confirmation of supervision before applying, but it will help your application if a supervisor has already indicated some level of interest in your research project.
