JOINT PhDs APPLICATION ADVICE
Applicants to Joint PhD programmes are encouraged to contact the department before submitting an application, to discuss the suitability of their topic for the joint programme and the availability of suitable supervisors at both institutions. Applications should initially be submitted to the proposed home institution only, i.e. the institution where student will start and finish their programme. Applications will then be assessed by both partners.
Applicants who choose King’s as their home institution should apply through the online application form, selecting the appropriate Joint PhD option from the drop-down list. In addition to the standard supporting documentation, applicants should submit a travel plan indicating how they intend to split their time between the two partner institutions. Applicants to Joint PhD programmes are normally expected to start the programme in September.
PERSONAL STATEMENT & SUPPORTING INFORMATION
Applicants are required to write an outline research proposal of up to 1,000 words that includes the research area, an overview of relevant literature, the research question, the methodology, and timescale of the project. Applicants should also write a statement to support an application to the programme and submit a curriculum vitae.
Most research students in the School of Nursing and Midwifery are either self-funded or funded by their employers. Applicants may be eligible to apply for funding through the Graduate School. Any funding opportunities are highly competitive, and it is important to discuss the possibilities with potential supervisors well in advance of the closing dates for applications.
