Postgraduate research applicants

There is no deadline for applications to postgraduate research courses because it is possible to start at different times throughout the year. However, we recommend that you apply as early as possible to allow yourself plenty of time to make the necessary arrangements to move to Sheffield before your start date.

You should also be aware that there are deadlines for applying for most of the funding sources for postgraduate research courses. These can be found on the scholarship and funding webpages.

For ways to apply for a PhD, consult our prospective postgraduate page.

You should then apply through our online application form.
