Academic Schools

PhD students join one of the three Academic Schools: Glasgow School for Business and Society; School of Computing, Engineering and Built Environment; School of Health and Life Sciences. Students work with academic staff as apprentice researchers, and where appropriate, will join a research cluster in one of our Research Centres. Each School has active research communities, providing solid support in each research discipline, while the Institutes give the opportunity for cross-disciplinary and collaborative research.
