At Westminster, we are known for high-quality internationally recognised research in a wide range of subjects, for our combination of pure, practice-led and applied approaches, and for using our knowledge for the betterment of society. We have a well-developed research degree programme and a reputation for delivering high standards in research degree study in subjects ranging from Literature to Life Sciences, and from practice based Art and Design projects to political theory.

Graduate school

Doctoral researchers at the University of Westminster belong to an academic School and also become members of our wider research community of doctoral researchers and research staff who meet and engage in a range of research focused events and activities through the Graduate School.

We support our doctoral researchers to work towards a timely and successful completion of their doctoral programme by providing informed and supportive supervision and an annual programme of events for supervisors and doctoral researchers to take part in and contribute to, such as interdisciplinary research seminars and our bi-annual Graduate School Assembly.
