Programme structure: Aerosol Science (PhD) - what's running in 2019/20

Please note: Due to alternative arrangements for teaching and assessment in place from 18 March 2020 to mitigate against the restrictions in place due to COVID-19, information shown for 2019/20 may not always be accurate.

The maximum period of study for full-time students is 4 years. This catalogue only shows the taught units on the programme and may not show all years of study.

The MRes is an exit point from the PhD in Aerosol Science and may be awarded to students who leave the PhD following successful completion of the first year of study, comprising the units outlined below.

For PhD Progression, in month 10, the student will submit a written report (in the format of a journal manuscript such as a review/perspectives article). The written report will be discussed at the progress monitoring interview, organised in accordance with the PhD host organisation’s progression policy and including a representative of the CDT.
