The application process
You are advised to make enquiries a year prior to intended entry. We strongly encourage you to look at our Research pages to identify areas of interest to you and then directly contact the Principal Investigator (Group Leader) to discuss possibilities of joining them. This should be addressed before you submit your application to the University. Selection of the correct research area programme code is crucially important.
The main application deadline is 12 noon GMT 6th January 2017 for entry in October 2017. Students who wish to be considered for funding, must apply by this date in order to be entered in the Divisional & Departmental funding competition. Later applications at the later date in early March (after the funding competition deadline) will be considered, if places are available but you are encouraged to contact us first. International students must allow time for obtaining a visa.
