PhD (Doctor of Philosophy)

A PhD is one of the highest internationally recognised academic qualifications that any institution can award. BGU provides opportunities for full or part-time PhD study within its growing community of scholars and healthy research culture. BGU’s emerging success in research, as demonstrated with a small Research Assessment Exercise entry in 2008 and a strong research endorsement for our doctoral-level work from the QAA in 2010, gives us presence within an increasingly research-intensive and competitive sector. Research supervision for the PhD is undertaken at BGU with the degree itself awarded by the University of Leicester.

Job Opportunity Potential

At BGU we want our students to have as broad a University experience as possible. Getting involved in paid work and volunteering is a great way to feel part of the University and wider Lincoln community. The experiences you gain will

help you in the graduate recruitment market,
count towards your Volunteering Award and Graduate Attributes Excellence Award and
develop your employability skills.
These opportunities are also a great way for you to meet people, make friends and give something back.

As we can’t host the annual Jobs on Campus Fayre or Volunteering Fayre at this time, we’ve pulled together all the information you need to get involved onto this webpage. You can browse opportunities, read job descriptions and watch videos from students already involved.

The Careers, Employability & Enterprise team supports BGU students during their studies to research and plan their career, and to improve their employability.
