Once you have identified a research area of interest with a potential supervisor, please apply using the PhD and professional doctorate online application portal. This allows you to complete the necessary information and attach copies of relevant documents, including the details of two appropriate referees.
Research proposals should be one to two A4 pages long and relate to an area of expertise in the Department. We encourage you to read the Graduate School's guidance on how to write a research proposal.
Although you will be working with a specific department or supervisor, all PhD applications have to be made centrally. We will acknowledge your application and then pass it on to the appropriate school or department.
While most new students join the PhD programme in October, it is possible to start your studies at any point during the academic year.
