It is our pleasure to welcome you to the HDR student section of the IGPA website. We hope you find the site interesting and decide to come to study with us. We pride ourselves that, as well as being a place where excellent research is done and PhD students are nurtured and encouraged, IGPA is an environment in which people are happy to work. We regard that as important, working on the simple principle that, if people are happy coming to work, they work better. So, explore the site, and then, if you are interested, contact us by phone or e-mail and, if it is possible, come to see us. We can guarantee that, if you do visit, and ultimately come as a student, you will learn a lot, and enjoy yourselves.

This site provides you with the information you need about being an HDR student in IGPA. We begin with a brief introduction to the Institute, before dealing with issues about funding, the types of PhD we offer, the PhD process, the research strengths of IGPA, including details of our staff and their interests, and the application process. We finish with brief profiles and views of some of our current students – after all they are the people closest to the PhD experience.
