Research Opportunities

Research Opportunities

Opportunities to carry out research in the Technological Higher Education Institutions (THEIs) at Masters and Doctoral level occur regularly. The THEIs are interested in attracting talented individuals worldwide who would like to complete a Masters by Research or Doctoral Degree. One strong element of many of our research degree programmes is the opportunity to work closely with enterprise or community partners. The technological sector adheres to the principles outlined in the National Framework for Doctoral Education, which is a framework that underpins excellence in all forms of research education.
