Postgraduate Research Study at QMU

Our postgraduate research courses can form the foundation of an academic career or indeed act as continuous professional development (CPD) in many professions. We offer two routes for doctoral study: PhD and Professional Doctorates. In addition, we offer a Master's of Research and a Master's of Clinical Research, which each offer a first step towards an academic research career.

In this section, you can find details of our postgraduate research courses, PhDs and professional doctorates.

You will also find information on the QMU Graduate School.  All of our doctoral students are members of the QMU Graduate School,  which is designed to bring together people and good practice, enhancing the doctoral student experience.

Each of our research centres welcomes applications for research in their fields.

The University is offering an additional 10% discount on postgraduate tuition fees to this year’s QMU graduates and alumni, on top of their existing 10% discount, when they apply before the end of July 2020 for a programme commencing in 2020/21. This makes the total discount 20%. This additional discount is in recognition of the challenging circumstances that the COVID-19 pandemic presents, and the uncertainty for this year's graduates in relation to the job market.
