About this service #221>

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

The listings include details of new research posts. Although courses frommore 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 youshould not assume that institutions not featuring in these lists have no coursesto offer. This listing should give a good flavour of the wide variety ofresearch training on offer at higher education institutions in the UnitedKingdom.

Potential students should not make decisions on the basis of this listingalone. Potential candidates should contact the institutions of their choicedirectly if they wish to discuss their future plans.They should not contact TheTHES or the compilers of this listing.

Quality of degrees #221>

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

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