We would be interested to hear from anyone who might be interested in pursuing postgraduate studies linked to any aspect of our research work. We have a large and vibrant community of postgraduate research students, who benefit from expert supervision based on our proven research strengths. Students interested in research degrees at MRes and PhD level may apply direct with their own research proposal. See www.uws.ac.uk/study/research-degrees for more info.
Some recent examples of research projects led by our PhD students centre around examining nitrate-rich vegetables, such as spinach, in improving exercise performance. You can read more about this work which was featured as part of the University's Student Showcase in 2020 here.
