Career opportunities

The PhD is a vital vocational qualification for those planning to pursue an academic career.

Recent graduates have gone on to research fellowships, and to part-time and full-time temporary and permanent academic positions in UK and overseas universities including Oxford, UCL, Manchester, Exeter and Leeds.

As a non-vocational qualification, the PhD offers a wealth of highly valued transferable skills, and allows you to keep open a very wide range of career options in virtually any branch of professional employment in the public or private sector, including government, commerce, industry or teaching.
