There are two specialist services which assist students with other aspects of their programmes and research student life.

The research support infrastructure has been developed with two distinctive and complementary offices:

Research Student Registry located in Greenbank Hub

This Research Student Registry (RSR) provides a wide range of support and advice for postgraduate research students for all stages of a student’s research degree programme: from enrolment through to the final award. Enrolment and progression records are managed by the office. Submission of the thesis for final examination takes place in the RSR.

For more information, please contact us:

phone: 01772 894287

The RSR also represent the interests of the postgraduate research community within the University.

The Head of Faculty Operations for this service is Clare Altham.
