Applications for Postgraduate Research Programmes

It is important to apply as early as possible as demand for places on postgraduate research degree programmes often exceeds the number of places available. You do not need to wait for final examination results or references before you apply for a study place.

Applications for these degree programmes must be made using the University's online application system.

There is no application fee to apply for a postgraduate research degree programme including MPhil, PhD or PhD with Integrated Masters programmes. Postgraduate research degree programmes can begin at different times throughout the academic year. The start date has to be agreed with your PhD supervisor.

Further information and the online application can be found in our Prospective postgraduates section:
