Apply for a PhD

Please apply for a PhD on the University's application page. We do not require you to submit your own research proposal in your application, but we would like to know about your research interests, and if you would like to work in a specific research area.

PhD application page

You need to apply for funding through studentships in parallel (except for STFC studentships, which we can offer directly). Deadlines for studentships are usually end of January / early February. We consider candidates for STFC studentships around the same time in the year.
