Our PhD Students
The AECC is in partnership with a number of Higher Education institutions and individuals to support our research activity at the post graduate level. In terms of research this takes the form of a number of PhDs that are jointly supervised and funded with through other institutions.
Students undertaking PhDs are registered at external universities but supervision of these students is shared between academics at the AECC and the registering universities.
A number of other current studies, mostly generated and guided by AECC academic faculty are also common features of the research activity at college.
A list of our current PhDs are appended below. Completed research PhDs are to be found in our PhD archive
