Why Postgraduate Research?
Choosing a research degree is an important decision whether you are currently in full or part-time study, in employment and building your career, or simply would like to research a particular subject in more depth.
Choosing your research degree
You can study for a research degree with us full or part-time. In fact, many of our researchers are professionals who have returned to study part-time.
We offer four postgraduate degrees at Christ Church:
