About

Places on Biology awards offered by Staffordshire University are limited by the number of supervisors undertaking research in the various topics and by the subject areas in our research strategy. For students studying part-time, face-to-face meetings with supervisors and access to study resources are important issues, and will affect acceptance onto our awards. Part-time students are expected to spend an appropriate amount of time within the Faculty each year. A student s individual circumstances will affect his or her access to study materials. While access to the Web is helpful, access to a good research library, for example, is imperative for advanced research work. Local supervision, especially for students outside the UK, is also an important issue.
