Work with an internationally renowned academic team that has extensive research activities and collaborations, is widely published and attracts significant grant funding.
The group is known internationally and focuses primarily on translational research, taking a public health perspective on hearing loss management, with a strong interdisciplinary research slant.
Working within the Department of Vision and Hearing Sciences, we can arrange supervision for a very wide range of PhD topics (see ‘supervision’ below), including interdisciplinary programmes.
As one of our PhD students, you’ll be a valued member of our group, with your own workspace, approachable staff and a strong peer group to support and inspire you.
You’ll be able to showcase your work at our departmental meetings and at scientific conferences. Plus there’ll be networking opportunities with our partners nationally and globally.
We include comprehensive research training modules in your programme. These will help you develop professional skills that will be invaluable to your PhD research and wider career.
If you've already conducted research and published work that demonstrates an independent and original contribution to knowledge in this field of you may wish to apply for a PhD by Published Work.
You’ll enjoy the support of supervisory team members chosen for their expertise in your field of interest. They’ll complete regular formal reviews with you, but are here to help you any time.
We’ve a strong record in specialist hearing and interdisciplinary research – and we can support laboratory or field-based studies. Here are a few examples of our current work:
The Faculty of Science & Technology is one of the largest of five faculties at Anglia Ruskin University. Whether you choose to study with us full- or part-time, on campus or at a distance, there’s an option whatever your level – from a foundation degree, to a BSc, MSc, PhD or professional doctorate.
Whichever course you pick, you’ll gain the theory and practical skills needed to progress with confidence. Join us and you could find yourself learning in the very latest laboratories or on field trips or work placements with well-known and respected companies. You may even have the opportunity to study abroad.
Everything we do in the faculty has a singular purpose: to provide a world-class environment to create, share and advance knowledge in science and technology fields. This is key to all of our futures.
In some cases extra costs known as bench fees will be charged for a postgraduate research degree. These are to cover additional/ exceptional costs directly related to a specific research project.
We charge bench fees in bands. They may apply for every year of your course. These bands are the same for full and part time students.
If you have to pay bench fees this will be made clear at your interview for a place. If have to pay bench fees this will be stated in your offer letter.
For 2018/19 the bench fee bands are:
Initial registration: £1100
Full registration: £3500
Anglia Ruskin's academic excellence was recognised in 2014, as part of the Research Excellence Framework (REF), an exercise which assesses the quality of academic research. Twelve areas of our work were classed as generating world-leading research. The results showed that we're making a significant impact on economies, societies, the environment and culture in all corners of the globe.
You’ll develop a strong set of research skills as part of your programme and there’ll be good networking opportunities with fellow research students, partner institutions and employers.
Our research partnerships span many countries, including Finland, Sweden, Portugal, India, Iran and China.

If English is not your first language, you'll require a minimum IELTS score of 6.5, with a minimum of 5.5 in each component (or equivalent test). If you don't meet our English language requirements, we offer a range of courses which could help you achieve the level required for entry.
It's possible that research in this area will need an Academic Technology Approval Scheme (ATAS) certificate. If we make you an offer to study with us we'll also give you the information you need to apply to the Foreign and Commonwealth Office for your ATAS certificate.
