Welcome from the Director of Postgraduate Research Students

shabir Brunel Law School has a long-established reputation as a research-active law school.  Excellence in research matters to us and we actively promote research activities.

In all cases, in addition to promoting expert insights, we encourage our students to participate in all relevant research activities, particularly to present papers on their new research findings.  The pursuit of new ideas and breaking the frontiers of knowledge is the essence of our PhD programme. 

A high quality PhD degree from Brunel Law School will equip our students with sound knowledge and valuable skills that will make them stand out in the crowd.

 Why study for a PhD?

A PhD is more than just studying, it is a path to in-depth knowledge and unique expertise in your chosen field. In addition, studying for a PhD will help:

  • Enhance skills and develop new ones (independent study, research skills)
  • Demonstrate to future employers an ability to cope with a heavy workload and to self-motivate
  • Develop expertise that only few have in the world
  • Gain an internationally recognised qualification

Postgraduate study at PhD level may also be a requirement of your chosen profession or enable you to enhance career prospects. In addition to a PhD, we also offer an MPhil. Please see below for information on the duration of research.
