Welcome from the Director of Postgraduate Research Students
Brunel Law School has a long-established reputation as a research-led law school. Excellence in research matters to us and we actively promote research activities.
We encourage our PhD students to participate in all relevant research activities, particularly presenting 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 excellent knowledge and valuable skills.
With our wide-ranging research activities we can accommodate a variety of research topics and are always happy to discuss ideas before you make a formal proposal.
Dr Jurgita Malinauskaite
Director of Research Degrees
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 your skills and develop new ones (independent study, research skills)
- Demonstrate to future employers your ability to cope with a heavy workload and be self-motivated
- 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. A candidate for a research degree may be registered in either full-time or part-time mode. We will provide a friendly, supportive setting if you’d like to pursue an MPhil (normally 1-2 years full-time and 2-4 years part-time) and a PhD (normally 2-4 years full-time and 4-8 years part-time).
