Embarking on a degree is an exciting journey full of new experiences, challenges and adventures. We support and encourage our students to take advantage all the opportunities and events run by the school and to engage with the research culture in HAPP. Students at all levels are a central part of our school community. The school supports student-led initiatives, enabling students to organise events, take part in national and international student conferences and attend events such as Model NATO. We encourage students to take up the many opportunities available to study abroad at other leading universities. Our students enrich the life of the school and the wider university.

PhD Research Culture
PhD students are an integral part of the School, working closely with our academic staff to push the boundaries of knowledge in the development of their research projects. Our PhD students are active in our research centres and we offer them opportunities to develop transferable skills, to gain experience of teaching and gain recognition from the Higher Education Authority. We support them in their professional aspirations. We have several student-led seminar series and we assist students to attend local and international workshops and conferences.
