Application process for studentships

Applying for a studentship follows a different process than applying for a PhD or MD(Res) course. Therefore please read the advert carefully to ensure you apply to the correct department and with correct funding code.

It is likely that you will have to make an online application but the project approval form may have already been completed by the supervisors. If this is the case, then if successful, all you will need to do is to sign the project approval form, to confirm you are happy with the project. Otherwise, you will work with the supervisors to complete the project form.

A project approval form has to be completed in all cases as the project has to be approved as suitable for a PhD and feasible in the time allowed. 

Should you have any queries about the PhD studentship application process, please contact the Postgraduate Research Administrator by emailing
