Welcome to the PGR Handbook!

Next topic



This is the Handbook for Post Graduate Research (PGR) in the Department of Computer Science which is part of the School of Engineering within the Faculty of Science and Engineering (FSE) at The University of Manchester. You are expected to make yourself familiar with the contents of this Handbook as it contains information about PGR programmes, assessment rules, and descriptions of the facilities of the Department and University, as well as guidance on undertaking PGR work here.

Our programmes are regulated by the Manchester Doctoral College [2], as are all other Doctoral level training programmes at the University, for which there are a set of rules and regulations as detailed in the Code of Practice [3]. Further, the School of Engineering delegates authority to all of its Departments for the implementation and management of all University policies and frameworks relating to Teaching, Learning and the Student Experience and its degree regulations. This handbook is a description of how we - here in Computer Science - operationalise these rules and regulations as delidated to us by the School.

This handbook is an evolving document that continues to grow in line with developments in graduate education and with the ever increasing levels of best practice in postgraduate research at the University of Manchester. Staff and students are encouraged to become actively involved in improving and extending the code. All feedback is welcome and should be directed to the Director of Post Graduate Research here in Computer Science.
