How to apply
We recommend that you contact either a member of academic staff or our postgraduate admissions team to discuss your chosen area of research before submitting your application.
Apply through the University's online application system as early as possible in the academic year to allow sufficient time for applying for external funding, and for visa applications and approvals.
You can start your PhD in January, April, July or September, and you may apply up to a year before your intended start date.
Decide on your area of specialism by exploring the Department's main research areas.
