Specialised PhDs

Doing my PhD study at Brunel University London has given me exposure to an outstanding academic experience and research environment which has helped expand my intellectual inquiry. The support and resources made available for doctoral students and their research are excellent. My supervisor’s high expectations, confidence in me and enthusiasm for my research project is the driving force to give my best and to be the best that I can be.
