Postgraduate Study at the College of Arts, Humanities and Social Sciences


Maximise your potential...

As a postgraduate researcher in the College of Arts, Humanities and Social Sciences (CAHSS) you will be supervised by dynamic and rigorous academics whose research has been recognised as world-leading and internationally excellent in the 2014 Research Excellence Framework.

As doctoral researchers, you have access to a wide range of opportunities and resources that will help you develop your research and professional skills, to discuss ideas with other PhD students and staff and to receive mentoring from senior academics.

Developing knowledgeable and capable postgraduate research students...

A primary objective of all our postgraduate research programmes is to develop knowledgeable and capable postgraduate research students and to provide the necessary support throughout their studies.

To help our postgraduate research students make the most of the available opportunities, we recommend that they attend the College Graduate School Induction Day held during Welcome Week.

The purpose of this event is to give a warm welcome to CAHB’s research community, to guide you through the exciting opportunities of studying at a Welsh University and to inform you of the facilities and support provision at your disposal. You will also have the chance to meet key academics such as the University’s Dean of Postgraduate Research, the College Director of Research and the College Director of Postgraduate Research.

The College Director of Postgraduate Research, Dr Helena Miguélez-Carballeira your School’s Postgraduate Lead and your supervisors are all experienced academics from whom you can seek advice at any point during your study. For information about their different roles and remits see the CAHB Postgraduate Research Student Handbook.
