Research degrees

Once you have decided in which area you would like to perform research, we encourage you to have an informal discussion with staff in the relevant research centre. You should then apply using the standard postgraduate application form and send this to the faculty office for the research theme that you are applying for. You are asked to provide full details of your academic and work background and most applications require the names of two academic referees. When considering an application the University must ensure the research proposal is appropriate, the applicant is suitably qualified and adequate supervision and facilities are available. After enrolment, you must submit a formal research proposal within three months to the University's Research Degrees Sub-Committee for approval.
