Department of Computer Science - Postgraduate Research Opportunities

Expert supervision is offered in the following areas: computing science; network and information security; critical infrastructure protection; networked appliances; computer games; technologies; serious gaming; internet of things; distributed and autonomic software engineering, applied computing; neural computation and allied computing.

The programme route you undertake will depend on your qualifications and experience. Most of our students initially register for MPhil/PhD and go on to complete their PhD via successful progression from MPhil.

On joining LJMU you will be allocated up to three supervisors (including a Director of Studies) who will work with you during your studies. Progression monitoring is undertaken formally and informally by this team on an ongoing basis.

Throughout your studies, you will also have the support of LJMU's Graduate School which offers expert advice and guidance to those enrolled on MPhil and PhD programmes.

Entry requirements

To study for an MPhil or MPhil/PhD you should have, or expect to obtain, a minimum 2:1 Honours degree in a relevant subject. If you are applying for a PhD direct you must: have a Masters degree with a research dissertation in a relevant subject; have undertaken research training directly related to the PhD project. If you have alternative qualifications, your application will be considered on merit. Appropriate research and previous experience will be taken into account.
