The majority of applicants will be interviewed, and as places are limited on both the domestic and international programmes you are advised to submit your applications as early as possible. Interviews will take place in blocks throughout 2013, with each block having its own deadline (for fully completed applications) as below:
First deadline: 1 May 2013 (interviews in week commencing 20 May 2013). Second deadline: 16 July 2013 (interviews in week commencing 5 August 2013).
International students may be interviewed by telephone. Applications received after the 16 July 2013 may be accepted should places still be available.
Writing sample: Please provide a recent sample of writing preferably on a topic or within a discipline related to education. This writing should be for work at Masters level or above. It could come from coursework, dissertation or even published research (single-authored). If you do not have such a sample of work, please contact us to receive a topic on which to write a sample for the application. Writing samples should be uploaded as an attachment in the Research Proposal section of the application form.
References: You should provide two academic references. If this is not possible we can accept one academic and one work reference. The academic reference should ideally be from your Master's supervisor.
Supporting Documentation: You should also provide a transcript of your grades from your Master's qualification (a Certificate is not sufficient).
