PhD by Publication

Split-site (or 'joint location') PhDs take place between Salford and an approved university (usually in the researcher's home country). This is a full time programme, during which the student should spend the equivalent of one year at Salford. The rest of the research takes place at a local university. The splite-site student has a supervisor at Salford, and an adviser at his/her local university.
