Doctoral Studies at UCL Earth Sciences
The primary reason for doing a PhD is to go into academia, although its highly prestigious status can also be extremely beneficial for careers in industry and the private sector. It requires perhaps 60-80 hours per week and takes at least 3 years to complete, so you need to find a suitable topic, which will engage your enthusiasm and interest for the long-haul.
Funded and NERC projects open for applications.

PhD Studentships Suggestions & Contact
We are always pleased to hear from students themselves who may have a clear idea of what they wish to do for a PhD. The first course of action is normally to identify a member of staff whose expertise lies in the appropriate area and contact them directly. If you are unsure about who to contact, please contact the Departmental Graduate Tutor.
