The School welcomes enquiries and applications from suitably qualified people wishing to conduct research in any of the broad fields outlined on our research pages.
Applicants should apply using the application form available from the University.
Each application is considered on individual merit. Applicants are encouraged to provide as much information and supporting documentation (where requested) as possible about their academic record, relevant work experience and funding support. It is essential to outline a topic or area of interest so that we can assess whether we have staff who are able to supervise the research study.
Applications can be made at any time of the year, and if successful, students may start their study on the 1st October, 1st January, 1st April and 1st July ONLY.
All MPhil and PhD applicants are requested to submit a research proposal with their application. For guidelines to writing a research proposal please see: click here for PDF or here for word .doc version of the PGR Applicant Proposal Guidance.
