Once you have identified a research area of interest with a potential supervisor, please apply using the PhD and professional doctorate online application system.
This allows you to complete the necessary information and attach copies of relevant documents, including the details of two appropriate referees.
You are strongly encouraged to read the Graduate School's guidance on how to write a research proposal before submitting your application.
Although you'll be working with a specific department or supervisor, all PhD applications must be made centrally. The University will acknowledge your application and then pass it on to our school.
Although most new students join the PhD programme in September, it's possible to start your studies at any point during the academic year.
