University Graduate College: Enhancing the experience of Postgraduate Researchers
Opportunities to study part-time are available within the School of Optometry
Part-time opportunities are available in many of our Academic Schools. They’re ideal if you need to balance study with work or family commitments - greater flexibility and all the benefits and support enjoyed by full-time students.
Use our Course Finder to find a suitable research area, and then contact the relevant Academic School to discuss how your research degree can be structured around your individual situation.
Part-time courses are usually twice as long as their full-time equivalent. Check our Course Finder for individual courses.
You’ll enjoy the same benefits and support as full-time students. See the Supporting your Research page for full details.
Fees are spread evenly over the length of your course. Our tuition fees sheets include a breakdown.
Part-time postgraduate research students can also apply for external funding, read Dorottya Cserzo's funding success story and tips.
"Being able to report significant results and extend the theoretical models to include my findings was a massive thrill which made the years of work totally worthwhile! The icing on the cake came less than 2 years later, when I was successful at my first attempt in getting promotion to Senior Lecturer. In addition, I have had two journal articles accepted which drew directly on my PhD work, press coverage for my work, and the opportunity to attend and contribute to industry seminars. So was the hard work worthwhile? Yes, most definitely!"
Fiona Davies, part-time PhD graduate
