Renowned for research
If you’re looking to take a research degree or develop your career as a researcher, Bucks New University has been recognised as ‘world leading’ and ‘internationally excellent’ in the research field. We host a number of well-known and cutting-edge European research projects, and offer a wealth of support and facilities to help researchers drive knowledge forward.
Our research is focused on the needs of business, commerce and industry, as well as the public and voluntary sectors. We encourage collaboration, and have a number of non-profit research centres and institutes that forge close links with industry, the public sector and charitable organisations.
We offer a range of postgraduate research degrees, including Master of Philosophy (MPhil) and Doctor of Philosophy (PhD) degrees. They are awarded by Staffordshire University, and research students are formally enrolled at Bucks as the institution responsible for supervision and support. You can study full time or part time, either by attendance or through distance learning.
Open access is when researchers make their work available to a wider group of people, for instance by publishing articles and conference papers, in order to disseminate their findings and have greater impact. We have adopted the Green Route to open access, which means researchers are free to publish in any journal, but should place a copy of any material they publish in the University archive .
