Swansea University Postgraduate Prospectus 2023

You can start your PhD at Swansea University in October, January, April or July. Give yourself 3 to 6 months to plan and research before submitting your application. At Swansea, we offer two main types of PhD project: • Those that are pre-designed by an academic (more common in science and engineering subjects) • Those that you design yourself


A pre-designed project will often be part of wider research being undertaken by an academic or research group. These usually have a defined title, fixed aims and objectives, and you’ll normally be supervised by the academic that designed the project. Swansea University advertises a large number of these opportunities throughout the academic year in all subject areas.


Research scholarships at Swansea University usually provide funding for the duration of your studies. There are also PhD loans available through Student Finance England and Student Finance Wales.


Applying is straightforward – you’ll just need to follow the instructions on the project advertisement. These will usually have a specific application deadline so allow yourself plenty of time to complete any paperwork and gather references if required.
