About the service

March 3, 1995

The THES Research Opportunities Service aims to list the current availability of opportunities for postgraduate research training.

The listings include a new service which gives details of new research posts.

Although courses from more than 140 institutions are represented here it is not an exhaustive listing.

Some institutions have not wished to list their courses in this way; so you should not assume that institutions not featuring in these lists have no courses to offer. This listing should give a good flavour of the wide variety of research training on offer at higher education institutionsin the United Kingdom.

Potential students should not make decisions on the basis of this listing alone. Potential candidates should contact the institutions of their choice directly if they wish to discuss their future plans..They should not contact The THES or the compilers of this listing.

Quality of degrees All UK universities in membership of the Committee of Vice Chancellors and Principals have power to award British degrees after either courses of study or programmes of research, and some colleges of higher education have one or both of these powers.

Other colleges provide courses or programmes which are validated by an institution which has those powers. Courses of this kind are listed under the name of the college which runs them; the name of the validating institution, which finally awards the degree, is given in brackets.

The compilers This list has been compiled by Higher Education Business Enterprises Ltd on the basis of returns from institutions. HEBE is an agency of the Committee of Vice Chancellors and Principals and the Standing Conference of Principals of Colleges and Institutes of higher educ ation. HEBE aims to establish and run commercial services on behalf of and for the benefit of HE institutions.

This information has been provided for information purposes only. It is not definitive and does not take precedence over the official publications of universities and colleges.

While every effort has been made to ensure that the information provided is accurate and that those institutions which wanted to take part have been included, HEBE can accept no responsibility for errors or omissions.
