About the Graduate School

We’re here to provide support to all of our postgraduate students, whether academically or by enhancing the student experience. We want you to feel part of the BU community and give you opportunities to get involved in various social events, particularly if you are a postgraduate researcher.

We work hard to create an inclusive, global community of postgraduate researchers, allowing you to make connections and network with other students and academics during your time with us.

One of our most important roles is in guiding your professional and personal development during your postgraduate degree. We do this through our researcher development frameworks, while your faculty will provide you with subject-specific support.

We also ensure the academic excellence of our research degrees and make sure their delivery is consistent, regardless of the subject area your research falls under. Our collaborative approach to research allows you to break boundaries and to work alongside specialists in other disciplines to deliver projects that have a real impact on people’s lives.
